Swan Boat Season in Boston Elizabeth Jacobs, Rachael Balsaitis

Depending on the season, the business employs between 20 and 25 people. It seems spring is officially here! The Boston Common is oldest public park in the country, with relaxing swan-boat rides in the park's lake. The boats were first launched in 1877. A sign that spring has arrived in Boston is the opening of the Swan Boats. Boston's historic swan boats kick off their 138th season at the Boston Public Garden Lagoon. The Swan Boat ride lasts about 12-15 minutes while the driver pedals you around the Public Garden lagoon. Walsh will host the first Swan Boat ride of the season as the popular attraction opens at the Public Garden lagoon at 10 a.m. Together, the Boston Common and Public Garden make one of Boston's most enjoyed outdoor spaces. The Swan Boat rides at Boston Public Garden begin for the season this Saturday, April 18. The Swan Boats are a fleet of dual-pontooned pleasure boats which operate in a pond in the Public Garden in Boston, Massachusetts. It captures the fun and the warmth and the specialness of Boston, the Public Gardens, and the swan boats. Photos: Start of Swan Boat season. The operators of Swan Boats of Boston are doing just that.
