Olmsted Park is part of Frederick Law Olmsted's 1,100-acre chain of nine parks, the <a href="http://www.cityofboston.gov/Parks/emerald/">Emerald Necklace</a>. The space was originally named Leverett Park until the city renamed it for Olmsted in 1900.</p> <p>Among the organizations that help care for the park are <a href="http://www.olmstedpark.org/">Friends of Olmsted Park</a> and the <a href="http://www.emeraldnecklace.org/">Emerald Necklace Conservancy</a>.</p> <p>For public transportation: Take the 39 bus to S. Huntington and Bynner. It's a 12-minute walk toward the Jamaicaway to reach the park.</p>
