In the centre of Boston Common is the Frog pond, used by females and visitors all year round, nice area of Boston and well worth a stop and watch the world go by also look out for the Bronze statues.

This is a cute pond, and nice place to unwind and people watch. As part of Boston Common, it's part of history as well.

Great, but expensive experience skating on Frog Pond. We went Saturday late afternoon and it wasn't overly crowded considering it's in downtown Boston. The ice is in good shape as it seems they maintain it every hour with the Zamboni. Nice to have such smooth...More

We had a great time ice skating! Decent pricing especially because we brought our own skates. The seal ride on devices for the kids were fun!

Visit this historic and ritzy Boston neighborhood to
soak up its classic New England charm as you stroll
down cobblestoned, gas-lamp lined streets. Bring your
walking shoes, camera, and select a nice day to wander
through the hilly neighborhood and check out its
exclusive addresses. Louisburg Square, Mt. Vernon
street, Chestnut street and the extremely narrow and
widely photographed Acorn street make a nice walking

Last year the skating season opened on 14th November 2017 so that would be a yes. They have their own website with opening times. Great city to visit any time of year. Hope you enjoy your trip

There is a bathroom steps from the water! There is a building that "houses" the lifeguards and their equipment and the bathrooms are in that. Extremely close.
