Look up the word love on dictionary.com and the fist definition you will come across is “an intense feeling of deep affection.” Walk through The Boston Common, Public Garden, and Commonwealth Avenue Mall on any given day or evening and you can’t miss the visual reminders that love is alive and well. Each of these green spaces serve as backdrop for some of the most love-filled moments of peoples lives – leisure time with family and friends, romantic strolls, and marriage proposals. They are also green oases for the community and top destinations for visitors who love history and horticulture. Whether your affection for these spaces celebrates open space, solitude or greenery, the Friends of the Public Garden would like to hear about your love for our parks. Please share your stories by commenting here, visiting us on Facebook, or sending an email.
