Spring is finally here, and as the weather (finally) warms up a bit, the flowers will bloom! Ready to see some flowers bloom, but deciding on where to? Don’t worry, we’ve got you! Here is our list of the best spots to see flowers in the Springtime, here in Boston.
Charles River Esplanade
The Esplanade is a wonderful linear park that wonders through Allston, Back Bay, and Downtown Boston. This is a great park to visit during the Spring. Here, you’ll see cherry blossoms blooming along the banks of the scenic Charles River.
There is also home to many flowers blooming, most notably, magnolia trees and lilac trees. Mark your calendars for the Arboretum’s “Lilac Sunday”, an annual festival in May at the Arboretum taking place this year on May 8th!
Though the Southwest Corridor is a 4-mile linear path that runs through several neighborhoods, the part you’ll want to see is in the South End, connecting you to Back Bay. Start at the Mass Ave T station and enjoy the scenic plant life, and gardens with wonderful flowers.
Commonwealth Ave Mall
Another linear path in Boston features large magnolia trees. With the brownstone buildings surrounding the parks, and historical monuments you’ll see on the path, this is an iconic Boston scene, and a lovely place to enjoy springtime. Plus, bonus points if you come here with a dog! It’s a common park to walk your pup downtown.
Mount Auburn Cemetery
A peaceful and tranquil place to visit, the Mount Auburn Cemetery has great plant life. In the spring, you can see a range of flowers, including daisies, cherry flowers, and snowdrops. The scenery of the cemetery makes it a picturesque visit any time of year.
Back Bay Fens
Within the Back Bay Fens, you’ll find the Kelleher Rose Garden, which features more than 100 varieties of roses and 800 rose bushes. Plan your visit while it’s in full bloom during the Spring season!
Boston Public Garden
Visit the Public Garden to see the stunning display of spring blossoms, including cherry blossoms. Stroll through the Victorian-style Boston Park to take in one of the most iconic Boston springtime scenes.
Rose Kennedy Greenway
Finally, a wonderful park to visit during the Spring is the Rose Kennedy Greenway. There are beautiful gardens that are well-kept, which include daffodils, peonies, daylilies, tulips, and rhododendrons. While you’re at it, you can visit nearby Christopher Columbus Park.
