Park Square in downtown Boston, Massachusetts is bounded by Stuart, Charles Street South, Boylston, and Arlington Streets. It is the home of the Boston Four Seasons Hotel, the Boston Park Plaza Hotel & Towers, and nearly a dozen restaurants. To the north across Boylston Street is the Boston Public Garden. To the east is the Washington Street Theatre District. The Bay Village neighborhood is to the south, and Back Bay is to the west.
At one time, the terminus of the Boston and Providence Railroad was located in the square, however after South Station opened, the terminal was closed.
A small street in the district was renamed "Park Plaice" in honor of Legal Sea Foods, a restaurant located there.
