Bliss for dogs on

The city Parks and Recreation Commission approved a plan Monday to establish five areas on Boston Common where dogs can run and play leash-free.

Under the plan, proposed by the Friends of the Public Garden and its Common Canine subcommittee, two of the areas will be used for a six-month ­period before the off-leash area is rotated to other sites.
