Oldest City Park in the US Oct 07, 2014
I visited Boston in May of 2010 and it was a perfect time of the year to explore the city. Boston is a lovely city ands at its heart is Boston Commons. The closest subway stations are Park near the est and Boyleston to the south.

The park is a tranquil space and although it's filled with people it can surprisingly quiet. There are many paths which offer the visitor a chance to explore the park and it's beautiful foliage. There are plenty of benches and grass that can offer plenty of opportunities to rest and relax. The park is surrounded by shops and restaurants and is a good jumping off point for exploring the city on foot. You can also start your tour of The Freedom Trail here.

Thanks for clarifying! It was about four years ago that I was there...

Basically, Boston Common is shaped like a trapezoid, surrounded by 5 streets, Beacon, Park, Tremont, Boylston and Arlington. So, a more accurate way to describe it is that both Boylston and Park are on the east side of the Boston Common (with Park in the north and Boylston in the south). Another station near the Common is called Arlington, located on the west side (also in the south part like Boylston). This is all part of the Green line, but at Park one can change to the Red line.
