Boston Common in Boston

Boston Common is a central public park in downtown Boston, Massachusetts.

Founded in 1634, the Boston Common is America's oldest public park and serves as an incredibly historic site with ties to the Revolutionary War, anti-Vietnam War rallies, civil rights rallies, and much more. Now owned by a nonprofit organization, the park contains beautiful walkways, fountains, statues, and play areas. Further, many families go ice-skating in the Frog Pond each year.
