Every morning, early, or late afternoon, I breath in the wonderful air and the natural sites of Jamaica plain pond. I have learnt it was made by a glacier many moons ago. Early morning you encounter runners, dog walkers, groups of girlfriends, mothers with strollers...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.

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
