Boston Common, also known as ‘The Common’ is a central city park in downtown Boston, USA. The public park dates back to 1634, making it the oldest city park in the United States. The park which covers 50 acres is recognised as a landmark of Boston. The park is a key part of Boston's history with celebrations, meetings and speeches taking place in the park over the years. Today, the park still hosts speeches but it is usually a place for people to take a break from city life and enjoy the greenery of the park.
The park is relatively easy to get to as public transport in Boston is good. Take the red subway line or the B, C, D or E trams to ‘Park Street’, which is the designated transport stop of the park. The 15, 39, 43, 55 and 57 buses all run close to the park.
