Boston Common Frog Pond

At the heart of Boston Common, one of the oldest and most treasured public parks in the US, sits the Boston Common Frog Pond. Although it’s named for the melodious creatures that once dotted the site, today, the pond’s placid surface is the natural habitat of visitors from around the world. The pond changes with the seasons; during the winter, park officials replace the water with ice for skating school and public sessions. During the spring and the fall, visitors cast pensive looks into the reflecting pond; in the summertime, those looks are trumped by the squeals of laughter from children cavorting around the spray pool and carousel.

No matter the season, the Frog Pond Café stays open, serving hot cocoa and soups to warm up winter guests, as well as year-round snacks including burgers, hot dogs, iced tea, and juice.

Customer Reviews

This is the first time I went to Frog Pond and had a great time. Ice was very nice. Will definitely go back. Danny was very nice and extremely nice (Zamboni)

The ice was really choppy, but it had been warm so the staff was working really hard to keep the ice as smooth and safe as possible. We had a great time when we went.

It was really quick and easy to get in and ask for the ice skate rentals. Early afternoon around 3 or 4 was a great time to go. I had a lot of fun!
