  • One of our favorite family places! We love to go here and little the kids paddle and then finish off with a picnic. Then may be a treat from a shop downtown before heading home.  more »

  • Awesome spot for kids. If you’re looking for a free spot for the kids this is a great spot in the Boston Common.
  • The pond has the best depth for toddlers. They can play and enjoy the water safely. The best part is that the water temperature is nice. I’ve taken my kids to many splash playgrounds, and water is usually freezing. But the frog pond is different, its a great temperature. Plus, there are 3-4 life guards on duty. I do advise water shoes, to avoid injury to their feet, because the floor is cement. Water guns are not permitted, neither floating devices. So, don’t even bother bringing. The park is opened from 11am-6lm (weather permitting). There is a small cafe (the cheeseburger is terrible, but the frozen lemonade is great), and there are other options such as French fries and chicken fingers. Bathrooms are average. There are some tables right in front of the pond and the bathroom/cafe - which is pretty cool, because you can have a seat, eat a snack, and easily see your child in the water. Next to the pond, there’s the tadpole playground, which also has a splash area. In addition, a carousel is next to te pond, on the opposite side of the playground. In summary, this is an awesome place to take your kids. There is a lot they can enjoy during summer.
