Boston Common is America's oldest park in the heart of Boston, offering recreation opportunities and a glimpse into history through numerous monuments to the past. Designated as public space in 1640, British soldiers later camped here during the Revolutionary War. Part of the Freedom Trail, the park adjoins the Massachusetts State House and Beacon Hill. A favorite spot is the Frog Pond, which doubles as an ice skating rink. The park is the beginning of the "Emerald Necklace," a seven-mile (12-kilometer) string of local parks designed by Frederick Law Olmsted.
We went in late March. The Frog Pond was de-icing; the boat tours hadn't started yet, it was muddy and there WZERE no flowers. I'm sure that had we gone in the summer it would have been nicer-and it would've been very nice if I didn't LIVE in the country-this waws just another park.
I just love this wonderfully charming city. I travel to Boston several times a year and each time I go back it makes me think, why not just move to Boston. I am loyal Bostonian. I find the Commomons to be . . .
breathtaking , captivating, suprior to any place on earth. I must confess my favorite time in the Commons is well, all year round really, I espically love the way it looks next to the mighty and majestic Charles.
I travel to Boston twice a year. I always have to visit the Boston Commons. In the Summer The Commons is a beautiful place to sit on the green grass and enjoys all of the outragiously vibrant colors of the flowers. The Commons is also a great place to people watch. ( One of my favorite things to do.)As well as the Summer, the Winter is a great season to visit The Commons. The ground is completely covered with snow and the ponds are frozen. The Commmons is decorated with millions of sparkling lights. I diffently have to rate The Boston Commons a 10+!!!!
