Description

The Public Garden adjacent to the Boston Common Park is a true oasis in the center of Boston. It was founded in 1837 with the assistance of philanthropist Horace Gray as the first botanical garden in America and covers an area of 97,000 square meters. There are a lot of trees, flowers and shrubs, as well as many statues, fountains and monuments in the parknIn the western part of the park is located the equestrian statue of George Washington. His gaze is directed towards one of the longest streets in the city – Commonwealth Avenue. In the center rises a 40-meter column of the monument to Soldiers and Sailors dedicated to the heroes of the Civil War. There is a bronze bas-relief at the foot of the monument and at its top is a female figure symbolizing America. She has a crown decorated with thirteen stars, a laurel wreath in her right hand and a US flag in her left.nIn the center of the garden there is a lake, where in summer the locals and guests of the city like to go boating in the shape of swans (this tradition is already 120 years old), and in winter to go skating. Since the nature in the park is carefully guarded, it is forbidden to walk on the lawn and ride a bike in some places.n
