Boston Common (a.k.a. the Common) is a 44 acre public park in downtown Boston that connects to Tremont, Park, Beacon, Charles, and Boylston Streets. The landscape belonged to Bostonians since 1634 and is America's oldest park. The Common was the center of public events surrounding the Revolution, where people would gather for protests or to celebrate victories. Even to this day, the park is a place for common use, with the most popular being recreational activities such as ice skating, summer theater nights, tennis, baseball, and running, as well as, attractions such as memorials and monuments.
