Hyde Park is Boston’s southernmost neighbourhood, renowned across the city for its diverse and vibrant populace that maintains a suburban character within the city limits.
At the centre of Hyde Park life, Stony Brook Reservation is a large urban forest featuring walking trails, a vast array of wildlife & a range of ponds, attracting many fishermen to the area. Each spring and summer the reservation plays host to a large population of colourful local wildflowers.
The Museum of Fine Arts is the most frequently visited museum in Boston and the fifth-largest in the United States. Boasting over 450,000 works of art, this is one of the most impressive collections in the country and locals are extremely proud of MOFA (as it’s locally known). The stand-out work at this Boston institution is perhaps Claude Monet’s Water Lily Pond, a dazzling impressionist oil painting by the French master. The Museum is also home to Vincent Van Gogh’s famous Portrait of the Postman Joseph Roulin, recently immortalised in an acclaimed animated film.
Throughout the area, from West Street to Reservation Road, Floom’s Hyde Park flower delivery covers the entire community.
