The pond is nice but my kids had a lot more fun at the Tadpole Playground right next door. Lots of things to do, you can easily hang out for an hour or so!

We wanted to see the Frog Pond and were able to see it even though it had been closed. It was larger than we thought and plan to come during the summer months in the future.

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.
