Walking Tour of Jamaica Pond

June 25 @ 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM EDT

Cost: Free

Travel around the Pond with the Jamaica Plain Historical Society. Once a district that only included the houses of Boston’s elite, the Pond later was put to industrial use as tons of ice were harvested there each winter. Learn about the movers and shakers such as Francis Parkman and James Michael Curley who made their homes on the Pond’s shores. Discover how the Pond was transformed from private estates and warehouses into the parkland we know today.  This is the 200th anniversary of the birth of thepark’s amazing creator, Frederick Law Olmsted.

Please follow all COVID 19 directives (as applicable).

This tour goes around the Pond and lasts 90 minutes. It will be canceled in case of heavy rain. No reservations are required, just meet the guide at the bandstand.
