Children and their guests counted down with Mayor Janey to open the Frog Pond for the 2021 season after a hiatus in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Mayor Kim Janey, Boston Parks Commissioner Ryan Woods, and The Skating Club of Boston kicked off the 2021 summer season as the Boston Common Frog Pond spray pool reopened on Thursday, June 24. The day included a fun and exciting celebration followed by a countdown to the fountain spraying high into the air. The event was made possible by lead sponsor Highland Partners Charitable Fund.

The Frog Pond spray pool is open 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.
