A five minutes ride brings you to this wonderful location. It's an easy walk around (about 1.5 miles) on mostly flat and paved ground. You can also bike on the trail. The views are very bucolic. I have always dreamed to learn sailing and you can just do that at the pond. I have caught quite a few…
The 1.5-mile loop around the pond is a beautiful walk any time of year, and the nearest part of the stunning "Emerald Necklace" of parks and ponds encircling Jamaica Plain. Full of aquatic birds, turtles, and other animals; a 9-minute walk from home.
A gorgeous pond with a jogging path around it, just a 15-minute walk from where you'll be staying. A blissful natural respite in a green corner of the city.
Jamaica Pond is in the Jamaica Plain neighborhood of Boston, Massachusetts, and was first included in Boston's "Emerald Necklace" of parks in 1892. Many people enjoy walking or running on the 1.5 mile path around the pond. Street parking can be found on Perkins Street , on the pond's west side.
Beautiful pond which is a part of the Emerald Necklace, designed by the iconic landscape designer Robert Olmsted (of Central park fame). Take a jog from her all the way down to Fenway if you'd like.
“Truly exquisite Spanish tapas and drinks, with a lovely book and record shop in the back, three blocks from home. Wonderful ambience, and prettiest patio in the neighborhood. The crown jewel of Jamaica Plain, in my opinion.”
“Arnold Arboretum is a lovely Park. It has extensive collections of trees from all over the world, some hundreds of years old. Many education opportunities. ”
“Can't go wrong with J.P. Licks ice cream. There are two local spots. Jamaica Plain is where you will find their 1st shop. You may also head over to JP Licks in Mission Hill/Tremont which is closer to our neighborhood”
“Tucked away beneath the Sam Adams brewery, Bella Luna is another hidden gem that deserves the hype”
