New Feature!



The Boston Common Frog Pond is a four season beauty in the heart of the Common. A wading pool in the summer and ice rink in the winter, the Frog Pond allows outdoor activity in the middle of Boston. Skate around with someone special or teach your kids a few tricks on the ice when the weather lets the water freeze. Open from mid November each year for public skating, this affordable attraction sees its share of proposals each season. When the weather takes a turn for warm, locals make their way to cool off in the shallow waters and fountains providing a free escape from the heat.
