A lovely arboretum to take a walk, enjoy the beautiful outdoors, and learn about native trees.

This is a really great place. My family and friends always meet here for a spring picnic when the Lilacs are in bloom, but it's a great park other times in the year as well. Great for Biking, Rollerblading, Picnics, Finding Frogs, Climbing trees, rolling down hills or many other fun things! Also, Climb to the top for a great view of the city!

Great arboretum. Fun for walking around in nice weather. Lilac days are a big thing.

Beautiful slice of nature in the midst of Jamaica Plain. From flowering trees to nice wide paths to walk, bike, rollerblade or move about how you will, there are a lot of reasons to visit. And, of course, it's free!
