  • It is spacious and a large pond. From the heart of Boston's a little distance to the South-West. Many kinds of animals, guests can enjoy the beautiful nature. I think if the weather is good, great.

  • Great and lovely place. Nice to walk along or dog walk around the pond(about a mile or more). Fishing & row boating are also enjoyable. Boat rental office located on east side of the pond. Parking issue is the only cons. Even roadside parking lot is located along Perkins st.(west side of pond), it is not so easy to park once, especially in weekend.
  • Jamaica pond is beautiful. The pond itself is nice, and the park around it is great. It is a nice place to take a walk, and nice to bring your dog too. Nearby there are some woods and they are nice to walk in.
  • The pond is a fantastic spot to visit and a true highlight of Jamaica Plains. It is a great place for a walk or run in the summer time and to walk a dog. Picnics here are scenic and there are at times neighbourhood events for friends and family alike! All in all a great part of Boston!
  • Beautiful escape from city life yet minutes away from everything. Great location
  • Too much traffic noise here. Many joggers too, but this is Boston. And no cigar smoking allowed, I later found out. I wondered why people gave me that look...
