Tucked into a quiet residential area, The Training Field is a popular place for neighbors to sit and chat on benches…More or pass through with their dogs. There is a striking monument in the center of the park honoring Charlestown's veterans, and large plaques by the intersection of Winthrop and Adams Streets that list the name of the region's fallen soldiers.
Thompson Square Main St & Austin St, Charlestown, MA02129 Thompson Square provides residents and visitors a place to catch their breath in the middle of a hectic intersection…More along Main Street. It's a small park that pays homage to what once was a bustling corner of commerce for historic Charlestown, but is now a spot where dog owners can take a break with their pets or for neighbors to stop and say hello to each other. From the park, you can get a good look of One Thompson Square, a Victorian Gothic structure built in 1875 just after Charlestown ceased to be an independent city and became part of Boston.
