    Join ducklings Jack, Kack, Lack, Mack, Nack, Ouack, Pack, and Quack as they are led by Mrs. Mallard from the Charles River to their new home on the island in the Boston Public Garden Pond.

    Kids love to climb atop Mrs. Mallard and her 8 ducklings. Added in 1987 atop cobblestones rescued from city. Make Way For Ducklings is the official children's book of MA. More info avail via our blog. Read more

    Great story and tribute to the author in this art sculpture. Take a picture of your kids on the mother Duck.

    Now that you've visited the ducklings (and surely climbed atop the mother duck), head over to the pond during the summer to ride a swan (boat).

    Please be considerate to other people who are trying to take photos. Don't hog up the ducks or have your kids hog up the ducks.

    If you haven't read the story since you were a kid, most every book or gift shop in town has a few copies on hand that you can flip through. Read more

    Been here 10+ times
    They never move or fly away! And they're at least 3 times as big as other ducks. Also they are fearless. I watched a dozen kids swarm them, they held their ground!

    Something everyone should do - chances are you’ve heard of the children’s book Make Way For Ducklings and reading this stirs up pangs of nostalgia.

    Stop by on Mother's Day for the Make Way For Ducklings parade - local children dress up as ducklings and follow Mrs. Mallard's route to the Gardens

    Whimsical installation, especially when the park costumes them for different occasions.

    You're not a "Make Way for Ducklings" completist until you also visit the copy of the statue near Moscow's Novodevichy Monastery. Read more
