      Boston Common Frog Pond Opens for Winter Skating Season

      It's freezing and the ice is ready ... And that means tomorrow, Saturday, November 22nd is the opening celebration of the 2014-2015 skating season at the Boston Common Frog Pond!

      The rink has evolved over the years into a popular skating destination for locals and visitors complete with café, complimentary Wi-Fi, rental lockers, music, events, skate rentals & lessons and offers incredible views of the city! More information and details can be found on their website at: http://www.bostonfrogpond.com/

      Since 1898 children of all ages have enjoyed the Boston Frog Pond. The location, which was originally a spring-fed watering hole for the city's cattle dates back to the founding of the Boston Common in 1634 and yes, it did have frogs!

      In the1840s, water demands for clean drinking and fire fighting were answered via water storage on the location. The water was provided from the Sudbury River via the Cochituate Aqueduct in Brookline and then piped in.  A fountain was built and the dedication ceremony for this historical event drew 100,000 people.

      Because the location has always remained pundeveloped and undisturbed, an archeological site was discovered in 1988. The site revealed that in pre-historical times, people made pottery and stone tools from local resources, hunted and ate clams. More information and an incredible digital reconstruction of the evolution of the Boston Common can be found on the following pages:
