The Boston Public Garden

September 1984
Yankee;Sep84, Vol. 48 Issue 9, p110
The Boston Public Garden is a tidy piece of work. A vest pocket oasis of botanical charm, it encompasses something just short of 24 acres in the heart of a city best known for its powerful architectural tradition and turbulent political history and which has no shortage of commercial ambition. All these have proven formidable opponents to the urban garden. The Garden still goes on being what it has always been: an ardent, if embattled, civic expression of a city's will to have a calm flower.
