Skating on the Frog Pond January 20 2014



Dating back to 1634, The Boston Common (also known as “the Common”) is the oldest city park in the United States. The 50 acre oasis, located in the heart of the city is part of the Emerald Necklace, the 1,100 acre chain of Parks and Parkways designed by Frederick Law Olmsted that begins at the Common and extends south to Franklin Park.

The Frog Pond, nestled in the heart of the Common, offers a place to enjoy and experience the historic park throughout the year. Walking through the Common one wintry afternoon, we came upon this enchanting scene, simply titled, “Skating on the Frog Pond”, set against an urban backdrop the image beautifully typifies life in this most livable city.
