We visit Salem often.....every year, all times of the year, all seasons. The Commons is always someplace we will stop and enjoy the peacefulness and beauty of the area. Our kids love the wonderful playground there is and it is surrounded by beautiful homes and a great central location and offers a great cut through to all the amazing attractions Salem has to offer. The wrought iron fence around it adds to the historical feel of Salem as well. Great place to relax and play!!

I absolutely love siting in the common when I visit. its the perfect spot to enjoy a coffee and listen to the winds whisper. Sitting in this common that has been part of the community for hundreds of years, you feel connected and transported through time. Wonderful public space.

The Salem Common is a lovely greenspace in the heart of the town. It's very pleasant to sit on a bench, on the steps of the monument, or on a blanket on the grass to read or chat with friends. The perfect spot for a bit of peace.

Beautiful green in the center of Salem. Lots of open space to sit and relax. It’s a nice spot to take a break from busy Salem for a few.

Very pleasant and large open green space to enjoy a taste of small town US life. The only detraction is the fairly busy road that runs by. Other than that, expect only dog walkers and a few stray tourists. This is opposite the Witch Museum and not far from a few worthwhile graveyards.

This is a nice park but pretty desolate in late February when I visited. There is a gazebo and a children's playground.

Still, I walked all around it. Must be beautiful in summer and fall.

Walk around the common and look at the beautiful homes . Or better yet dare to walk the common on Halloween night. This is a must do in Salem.

Not too many realize that Salem Common is in the movie Hocus Pocus. It's the scene where Max meets up with Allison to apologize to her for embarrassing her in class.

I expected there to be more to Salem Commons, there is a playground and open field, but that was really it. I was hoping there would be some sculptures or something there.

A nice park to take a stroll through right on the edge of all the town bustle. Very clean, quiet, and pretty.
