The oldest public park in the history of the USA, Boston Common‘s history goes back as far as 1634, when the area was designated a common pasture. It was also used for military purposes and for public hangings. The gallows were removed in 1817 and from 1830 on the grazing of cattle was forbidden. Ever since, the Boston common mainly serves as a public park for recreational purposes.
Boston Harbor Islands National Park
Is a wonderful place where you can walk a Civil War-era fort, visit historic lighthouses, explore tide pools, hike lush trails, camp under the stars, or relax while fishing, picnicking or swimming—all within reach of downtown Boston. Youth programs, visitor services, research, wildlife management, and more are coordinated on the park’s 34 islands and peninsulas by the Boston Harbor Islands Partnership.
Boston Public Garden
Visit this picturesque park and the bronze statues of the Mallard family, the ducks made famous in Robert McCloskey’s children’s classic, Make Way for Ducklings. Or experience the city’s one of a kind Swan Boats. Across Charles Street from the Public Garden, the Boston Common marks the official start of the Freedom Trail. It is also home to a skating rink in winter and a splash-around Frog Pond in summer.
Get a feel for Boston with a stroll along 17 miles of riverside paths and parks. Watch sailboats and racing college crews on the Charles River Esplanade.

TD Banknorth Garden

If there’s one thing you can say about Boston it’s that it’s a town that appreciates baseball. Bostonians’ love of the Red Sox is only rivaled by their hatred of the Yankees. And there is one place in the city that has captured the imagination of Boston’s baseball fans for more than 90 years—Fenway Park. Fenway is an old ballpark, a classic. It looks today very much like it did when it opened on April 20, 1912. It is full of history, echoing with the memory of baseball legends like Babe Ruth, Cy Young, and Ted Williams, and when you watch a game at Fenway you feel that you are a part of baseball history.
