Great views walking around this pond, both in nature and the surrounding homes. Lots of spots to stop and sit at, including the infamous bench you can't really sit in (google it)!

for a nice walk along the water. Bad weather in the forecast had us doing our walk at Jamaica Pond instead of going into the city to our usual walk at Castle Island. Parking can be tough but the walk is worth it. And decades...More

I particularly enjoy watching wild life here, mostly birds. I have seen swans and blue heron, as well as the usual ducks and geese. It is such a relaxing place to take a walk and enjoy nature.

Nice place to relax or walk around the pond. Parking is an issue. People also ride bikes on the pathway. They have sailing lessons for kids in season.

On Sunday the weather was beautiful and our 3 generation family walked part of the way around the pond. This is a wonderful central gathering place for families and couples in good weather.

Jamaica Plain
This Boston neighborhood feels like a distinct
community unique and separate from the bustle of other
areas. Beautiful Victorian homes, restaurants with an
emphasis on being eco-friendly and providing local and
organic food, and a large Hispanic community. Visit
Centre and South streets for restaurants, cafes, and
little shops. The Arnold Arboretum is a beautiful,
large green space well worth a visit if you venture to
