In Boston Public gardens are the Duckling statues, cut array of mamma duck and her ducklings, wait your turn and get a photo, well worth a visit to see them.

When visiting this park you have to bend down and take some pictures. They are really neat to see especially with young kids with you. Sort of a must-see if in the area. We showed up later in the day when the crowds were not...More

These are cute little duck statues within the Boston Public Gardens and only one block from Cheers! Take a pic here then go have a beer, like we did.

Very sweet statue in a well kept park. Must see, love the little costumes on them too! Who doesn’t love a family of ducks.

Walking around Boston common, we stumbled on these cute duckies. There's nothing amazing about them, just very cute.

A charming statue installment for everyone to enjoy. If I lived here I would walk by ever day to people watch, especially to watch the children interact with the ducklings.

The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with
historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through
one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston
Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling
statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the
pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where,
during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting
children and eager tourists through the pond. Have
