The City of Boston welcomes the children of Boston back to cool down in the summer heat on Boston Common as the Frog Pond reopens for summer activities.
A year-round recreational facility, the Frog Pond offers ice skating in the winter and aspray pool and supervised wading for youngsters in the summer. Just over the hill on the other side of the common kids of all ages can catch a Carousel Ride on the Boston Common Carousel.
The Frog Pond spray pool and wading program is open daily from 11:00am to 6:00pm until Labor Day. The facility is managed by the Boston Common Frog Pond Foundation and staffed by youth workers from the Boston Youth Fund.
The Lily Pad Café is also open from 11:00am to 4:00pm Monday – Friday, and 11:00am to 6:00pm Saturday and Sunday.
