Boston Common

Boston Common is a beautiful park located in central Boston. It was established in 1634 and is known as the oldest park in the United States. The Common had many purposes over the years including a pasture for grazing cattle, a camp site for the British Army and even used for public hangings.

A few pictures from Boston Common and the adjacent Boston Public Garden...

The famous bronze ducks in the Gardens, which is based on the book Make Way for Ducklings.

The bridge in the Gardens and the sight of the Swan boat rentals.
