Default Using foreach when an Arraylist field is declared

I am trying to model a field boundary which is a polygon made up of lines which are defined by their end points which are x,y coordinates.
I am all right writing objects for points and lines but when I try to model the polygon as an 'ArrayList' of lines I can't use 'foreach' to access it. I want to use 'ArrayList as I don't know how many sides the polygon will have.
quote:foreach statement cannot operate on variables of type 'RoutePlanner.Polygon' because 'RoutePlanner.Polygon' does not contain a public definition for 'GetEnumerator'
    public class Polygon 
        private ArrayList lines; // A polygon is an array of Lines
        public Polygon(int sides) // Constructor. Parameter is number of lines
            lines = new ArrayList(sides);
        public Polygon()
            lines = new ArrayList();// Constructor. null arraylist
        public void Add(Line newLine)

        private void btnTest_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
            Polygon myBoundary = new Polygon();
            Point MyPoint1 = new Point(2, 4);
            Point MyPoint2 = new Point(6, 8);
            Line MyLine1 = new Line(MyPoint1, MyPoint2);
            Point MyPoint3 = new Point(12, 14);
            Point MyPoint4 = new Point(16, 18);
            Line MyLine2 = new Line(MyPoint3, MyPoint4);
            foreach (Line myLine in myBoundary)
                string MyString = string.Format("From Line x1= {0}  y1= {1}  x2= {2}  y2= {3}", 
                                        myLine.From.X, myLine.From.Y, myLine.To.X, myLine.To.Y);

Why not do something like:
Line MyLine = null;
for(int i=0;i<myBoundary.Count;i++)
  MyLine = (Line)myBoundary[i];
  //Addtional logic
