More About Jamaica Pond
Jamaica Pond was scraped from the earth by glaciers and preserved as a park by Frederick Law Olmsted. The spring-fed pond is Boston's largest and purest body of fresh water.
Among the events held here is the Lantern Parade each October, in which thousands of people bring homemade and store-bought lanterns and walk around the pond.
Walkers, often with dogs in tow, make heavy use of the path around the pond. The state stocks the pond with trout for anglers. Boat rental is offered during the summer. Please note that private boats, canoes, etc. are forbidden.
For public transportation: Take the 39 or 41 buses along Centre Street and get off at Parley Avenue (39) or Lakeville (41).
