Frog Pond | Christmas Eve Day

Ice skating on the Frog Pond in downtown Boston on the Historic Boston Common. It is America’s oldest public park dating back to 1634. The Common is the ending point of Boston’s downtown park system, called the Emerald Necklace. The parks were designed by Frederick Law Olmsted, the man who designed New York’s Central Park. The Frog Pond becomes a reflecting pool in the spring and fall of each year and a wading pool for children in July and August.

We enjoyed an idyllic day skating with hot chocolate breaks.
