The Public Garden was established in 1837 and was the first public botanical garden in America. The Victorians ushered in the style of the park, which featured the gardener’s art. They designed vibrant floral patterns in the Garden, which utilized new techniques of collecting, hybridizing, and propagating plants. The Parks Department maintains the Victorian traditions to the best of their abilities. Admire the rich and unusual plants, the Lagoon, the monuments and fountains, and the Swan Boats.
