Boston Common

Boston Common

Boston Common is the anchor for the Emerald Necklace, a system of connected parks that winds through many of Boston's neighborhoods. Designed by Frederick Law Olmstead, the architect of New York's Central Park, the necklace connects the Franklin Park Zoo in Dorchester to Jamaica Pond in Jamaica Plain to the Fens near Fenway Park to Boston Common. The Common served as a cow pasture in 1600s Colonial Boston.
