Boston Parks Commissioner Chris Cook and The Skating Club of Boston president Joe Blount are pleased to welcome children and guests to kick off the 2016 summer season as the Boston Common Frog Pond spray pool reopens on Friday, June 24. The day will include a fun and exciting celebration at 11 a.m. followed by the opening of the wading pool.
“The Frog Pond wading and spray pool provides Boston’s youngsters with the opportunity to cool off in this landmark downtown park during summer’s hot weather,” said Mayor Martin J. Walsh. “We invite residents of all ages to come to Boston Common and enjoy the Frog Pond, Tadpole Playground, carousel, food concessions, historic monuments, and the Swan Boats and ‘Make Way for Ducklings’ figures in the Public Garden.”
In addition to activities from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., information regarding upcoming summer programs offered by the City of Boston and the Boston Public Health Commission will be available to families and residents and tasty treats will be provided by in-kind sponsors HP Hood LLC, DAVIDs TEA, and Polar Beverages.
The Frog Pond spray pool is open for wading daily from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. until Labor Day. The facility is managed by The Skating Club of Boston and staffed by youth workers from the Boston Youth Fund. For further information, please call the Frog Pond at (617) 635-2120.
