Public Garden and Boston Common

Public Garden and Boston Common Professional Review and Guide

"Although Boston Common and Public Garden were established 200 years apart (Boston Common in 1634 and the Public Garden in 1837) and are separated by busy Charles Street, these two public green spaces are linked in many people’s minds.

Combined, they form 75 acres of green fields, winding paths, waterways, and gardens, but they also offer two different experiences. The Public Garden is more formal, with Victorian garden designs featuring brass name tags on the trees, while the Common has more-utilitarian offerings, like bandstands, skating rinks, ball fields, and playgrounds."
