A look at some of JP's less-known urban refuges, both on and off the beaten path
Jamaica Plain is indeed fortunate to have abundant green spaces. As a major link in the Emerald Necklace, Franklin Park, Jamaica Pond, the Arnold Arboretum, as well as the Southwest Corridor Park, it's nearly guaranteed that though Bostonians we may be, we’re never too far removed from the natural world. Less known are the many “pocket parks,” some no bigger than a building lot, that dot our verdant neighborhood. While they’re not exactly secret gardens, like me, you too may be surprised by the existence of some of these urban refuges, both on and off JP’s beaten path.

On Wednesday evening, the Leland Street Community Garden, which nestles right up the fence of Forest Hills Cemetery, played host to musician Lloyd Thayer for a free concert. Boston Natural Areas Network sponsored the concert. Here are some images of the evening, as seen by JP photographer Courtney Sacco.
