NewEnglandTravelPlanner.com Logo   TD Garden Arena, Boston MA
Home of the Boston Celtics and Boston Bruins, "the Garden" is also a major venue for top-name concerts. It sits atop North Station.

 


 

 

The NBA's Boston Celtics basketball team and NHL's Boston Bruins ice hockey team pursue their victories in the 19,580-seat TD Garden arena above North Station, less than a mile north of Boston Common.

Formerly known as TD Bank Garden, TD Banknorth Garden, Fleet Center, Boston Garden, etc., the arena has changed names over the years as "naming rights" were sold to the highest bidder.

(Compare this to Rome's Colosseum, which has had the same name for nearly 2000 years...)

The name and the signs change, the venue remains the same: home to two of Boston's proudest sports teams, and site of concerts by top-name touring stars and meetings and events of large groups.

The relationship between a huge concrete arena and a garden is and always has been a mystery. Colosseum, yes. Even Palaestra. But...garden?

Built above North Station, TD Garden is easily reached by MBTA Green Line subway trains, and by MBTA Commuter Rail trains on lines north and west of Boston, as well as Amtrak Downeaster trains to and from Portland, Maine.
