The groundskeeper's log is a holotape in Fallout 4. It is narrated by an unnamed Bostonian groundskeeper, airing his grievances with his workplace and superiors.

Location[edit | edit source]

The log can be found sitting on the third bench of the swan boat at Swan's Pond in the Boston Common.

Transcript[edit | edit source]


Seriously, this is gettin' freakin' ridiculous. Merging the Common and Public Garden was a jagged enough pill to swallow, but I went along with it. What, I'm gonna fight the developers? But how much smaller can they really make the swan pond? We get boats crashing into each other every day. It's like a glorified puddle. But what do I know, right? I'm just the groundskeeper of the world's smallest grounds. I might as well stay home from now on. My garden's bigger than this. And at least I get to eat the peppers and cucumbers. Not watch tourists cry in disappointment.

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

  • The narrator of this holotape was voiced by Fallout 4 lead designer Emil Pagliarulo, who grew up in Boston.
  • The groundskeeper's complaints of having to merge areas and wanting to avoid fighting "the developers" is self-referential humor from Bethesda Softworks. As the game world has to be heavily condensed when compared to the real world, it appears that the merge of Boston Common and the Boston Public Garden is a reference to the smaller scale of Fallout 4's version of Boston.
