Boston Public Garden Mobile Tour App

18 Aug

Every day, children come to play with Mrs. Mallard and her ducklings in the Public Garden, as they have for over twenty years. Nancy Schön’s bronze sculpture recreation of the characters from the Caldecott Award winning classic, Make Way for Ducklings, could easily be the Garden’s most popular attraction, and not just for the little ones.

Let the artist herself tell you why. This mobile tour app doesn’t just give you the information behind each site, it’s like a shortcut to your own childhood.

Henry Lee, founder and longtime chairman of the Friends of the Public Garden, narrates. With his comforting Boston Brahmin accent, experiencing this one hour tour takes you way back, out on a stroll with your grandfather, meeting his old friends along the way. They all have a unique story to tell and they want to share it with you – without all that pesky cheek-pinching. Now that’s a good kid, go on and play – the Garden is all yours.
