Frog Pond at Boston Common Rating:
Ice skating at the Frog Pond is a wonderful winter experience. First there is the sense of history as you are skating in the countries oldest public park circa 1634. Then there is just the beauty of the Boston Common that surrounds the park. Yes you are right in the middle of the city, but there are no cars or big buildings, just the park. After a good skate, you can easily walk to any number of good restaurants or bars in either Beacon Hill, Back Bay or Down Town crossing as the Pond and Common are right in the middle of the three neighborhoods. The Boston Parks and Recreations Department does a nice job making the Frog Pond accessible for lots of skaters. First rates are reasonable on the order of $4 per person and kids under 13 are free. The Frog Pond also offers skate rentals which is very convenient. The pond opens at 10:00 AM and generally closes at 9:00 or 10:00 PM. For more information about hours visit the official website http://www.bostoncommonfrogpond.org/hours.htm. The Frog Pond is not the largest ice surface in Boston and is not for speed racers. It is however great for folks who just want to relax and have a little fun. I also enjoy walking through the common and just stopping to watch as the skaters go by. Happy skating.
