“Nice Open Park in Center of City”
Reviewed November 24, 2012

You'll find locals walking their dogs, playing frisby, jogging, and enjoying the day. Very pretty greens and foliage, squirrels, birds, simple nature tucked away in the center of town.

A great place to relax for a couple of hours on a sunny afternoon. in the summer the Frog Pond is full of children paddling and splashing about. there is also a carousel which is great for adults and kids !

“What an amazing beautiful park”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

Boston Common really is the peoples park. It is a beautiful, safe, friendly park and wonderful for people watching.
Really busy on weekends but it is well worth the gorgeous walk through. Well worth a visit when you go to Boston city area. Very pleasant to sit and relax and enjoy the buskers and activities.
