This is a nice place for strolling with the hundreds of squirrels leaping from branch to branch and the well kept lawn. In one corner of the park, there is a famous photo, which has become a mandatory visit for young and old, who take pictures everywhere of this curious statue.
A wonderful springtime trip to Boston and its public gardens. If you haven't been, it is well worth the trip. A large free garden with multiple trails and a lake awaits you. It is spectacular in the spring when all the flowers, especially the Cherry Blossoms, are blooming.
Back Bay Fens Park is one of the green areas that make up the Emerald Necklace, designed by Frederick Law Olmsted to give Bostonians a ring of green areas in which to relax, walk, jog and generally enjoy nature. The Emerald Necklace runs from Boston Common to the Public Garden, passes through the Fens and finally finishes at Franklin Park. Back Bay Fens park is one of the most picturesque parks in Boston. Its uniqueness stems from the fact that it is deliberately wild. The area in which it is located, once swampy and unusable, has been transformed into a wetlands area with a pond and plenty of birds living in its trees.
The park is crossed by a maze of dirt roads where it is not that difficult to get lost. After the most "wild" area, you get to Kelleher Rose Garden, a beautiful rose garden that grows around a round stone fountain. But the most interesting thing about the Fens is its community gardens, the "Victory Garden", old gardens dating back to the Second World War. It's weird to think that the center of a big city like Boston has these kinds of gardens. In short, the Fens was a really pleasant surprise, and not at all what we expected in the heart of a big city.
The Memorial Garden is a garden behind the church on Salem Street. Long rows of plaques are inscribed with the names of the dead, and you'll feel the emotional impact as you walk around and see the fresh flowers.
