Fun place to go on a hot summer day, the park itself is really pretty. With kids I recommend getting some sandwiches or takeout from anywhere nearby and going to the park, hanging out by the pond, and you can also see the duck states from "Make Way for Ducklings" - a good little piece of nostalgia for those who read the book when they were young.

I've only been to the pond in the winter, but it's a classic. Ice skaters of all levels are always here and it's easy and affordable (around $8) to rent skates for the night. They play music, and host free skate most nights. While it's not huge, it's large enough to host a hundred people or so (average attendance) and have room to mess-around even if you can't skate.
