Designed by Arthur Gilman in 1856, Commonwealth Avenue Mall is one of the most visited landmarks in Boston. The picturesque park acquires its green splendor from a variety of trees like American elm, sweetgum, green ash, maple and Japanese pagoda planted here. Quite a few statues of eminent personalities are also dotted around the park area. Some known faces who have graced this place are Alexander Hamilton, William Lloyd Garrison, Domingo Sarmiento and Samuel Eliot Morison. If all you want is some clean fun, then head to this park with friends, family and especially kids for a stroll or a run or to have a quiet lunch. It is also a great place to take your pet for a stroll and to simply get back to nature.
