A 'watering hole" in the heart of Boston

For more than 350 years the Boston Common has been a public space and although it has changed over time the frog pond (one of three that were originally on the site) remains providing a remnant of the original natural landscape.

Today the "pond" is more of a pool with a spray fountain for wading in the summer months that becomes a skating rink during the winter. There is a cafe with a casual menu (including Belgian waffles). A carousel and playground are located nearby making this the perfect spot for families with children who need a break from sightseeing.
