Get to know Back Bay

Parks and squares

Bordering Back Bay and Beacon Hill neighborhoods is the Boston Common and Public Garden. Originally where early settlers brought their cows to graze, the Boston Common is now home to swan boats, public art, playgrounds, and events, such as Shakespeare on the Common.

With a fountain, grassy space, and benches, the area in front of Trinity Church is a popular place to relax and take in the scene. You'll find the Copley Square Farmers' Market there on Fridays.

Go back to sixteenth-century Rome in the courtyard at the Boston Public Library and enjoy the warm sun, the cool marble, and the romantic fountain. Grab a bite from the library's Map Room Cafe and enjoy at one of the cafe tables that line the perimeter.
