The Sunken Garden, a beautiful common area featuring a lush fountain, is right around the corner from HGSE.

The Cambridge Common also borders most of HGSE. This Common, while being a popular place to kick around a ball or play frisbee, is also a historical site.

It was in the Cambridge Common that General George Washington gathered troops in a famous American Revolutionary War moment.

In addition to the monument held up in memory of this moment, the Cambridge Common also features the Irish Famine Memorial and a statue of Abraham Lincoln, as seen above.
