Frog Pond in the summer

What started out as a watering hole for cows in the pasture is now a refreshing resort for visitors at the Boston Common. Frog Pond is located in America’s oldest park and is a great place to cool off in the summertime. It officially became a swimming hole in 1898 and was used as a gathering for concerts, model sailboat races, and other summer pastimes. On hot days scores of children splash in the wading waters and showering fountains. - Leanne Burden Seidel and Lisa Tuite
