Boston Parks Commissioner Chris Cook and The Skating Club of Boston president Joe Blount are pleased to welcome children and guests to kick off the 2017 summer season as the Boston Common Frog Pond spray pool reopens on Thursday, June 29. The day will include a fun and exciting celebration at 11 a.m. followed by the opening of the spray pool.

In addition to activities from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., information regarding upcoming summer programs offered by the City of Boston and the Boston Public Health Commission will be available to families and residents and tasty treats will be provided by in-kind sponsors HP Hood LLC, Lantana Hummus, and Polar Beverages.

The celebration will feature a special visit from official mascot Frog Pond Freddie, entertainment, face painting, activities with Cambridge Science on the Streets, giveaways from Magic 106.7, and an appearance by the costumed character Surly from the movie “The Nut Job 2.” In addition, children of all ages are eligible to enter a summer raffle.
