  • 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.

  • 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!
  • Lovely place. You can jog, walk or bike. It's grate for pictures or even meditating. There is parking around the pond and restrooms too. Very nice
  • Very relaxing pond and good for excercise for anyone that looking to work out and burn some fat and losing weight too. You can get to see the duck swimming and you can get to relax and enjoy the fresh breast.
  • Nice place for a walk, picnic and a place just to hang out with friends
  • The paved path around this pond is about 1.6 miles in circumference and has only two minor hills. The circuit has exercise stations (including pull-up bar) and is popular with runners, walkers, and dogs (who must officially be leashed, but are frequently seen off leash when it is quiet). No bikes are allowed on the loop, but there is a bike path along Jamaicaway above the eastern bank. The pond is popular for fishing, picknicks, and hammocking. No swimming is allowed, though nobody will mind if you let your dog swim at the clean and sandy beach along the southern end. Ice skating is, unfortunately, forbidden. You can rent boats at the boathouse on the eastern end.
