- This concrete formation is a wading pool in summer, but it is its winter incarnation as a 16,000-foot outdoor skating rink that gets the most use. On crisp Boston nights, there may be nothing better than a twirl on the ice beneath the trees of the Boston Common and the lights of downtown skyscrapers. You may even have an audience;crowds often gather on the rail around the pond to watch the skaters glide. Entry free for children under 13. Skate rentals available for a reasonable price.
