Boston Common is one of America's most famous city parks. This lovely green space adjoins Boston Public Garden. This area was designated a park in 1634, making it our country's oldest public park. Prior to 1817, it was used for public hangings.

These two parks from part of Boston's Emerald Necklace, a ring of interconnected public green spaces.

Directions: Bound by Tremont, Beacon, Charles and Boylston Streets.
