This is like the swan boats

People seem to love it but I don't get it. Parking and traffic is crazy. I assume there are a lot of people in the park itself. Anyone want to weigh in that this is worth checking out vs say going last week or next weekend?

I love the Arbs and all but this seems like a good day to be anywhere else.

Side note - anyone else in Roslindale refer to the two different parts as the Nearboretum (south of Bussey) and the Farboretum (north of Bussey) or just me?

Yes.

Yes.

So disappointing
