About Jamaica Plain

This popular neighborhood has become a diverse neighborhood with a mix of long- time residents, families and single professionals. Jamaica Pond is a centerpiece and is encircled by a popular walking path measuring one mile. It also features fishing and community boating, and an annual candlelight walk attended by hundreds. Nearby is the Arnold Arboretum, Harvard’s famous 281 acre park dedicated to agricultural experimentation, and the second largest link in Frederick Law Olmsted’s Emerald Necklace.
