    The Boston Common consists of 50 acres of land bounded by several streets including Tremont Street, Park Street, and Charles Street. The Common is part of the Emerald Necklace of parks and parkways that extend from the Common south to Franklin Park in Roxbury. It’s status as a true park emerged after 1830, when cow grazing was ended and renaming the Common as Washington Park was proposed.
