Jamaica Pond is the largest standing body of water in the Emerald Necklace. Few alterations were needed to improve upon this natural feature. Olmsted saved much of the existing vegetation and framed the sheet of water with tree groupings, shrubs and pathways.
Pinebank Baseball Field is located on the north-east corner of Jamaica Pond on the corner of Jamaicaway and Perkins Street.
Driving: We urge people NOT to drive. There is no parking along the parkways and parking space along Perkins Street is very limited. (However, there is additional parking on side streets off of the Jamaicaway if necessary). Vehicles with handicap access can be parked up at the performance site.
By T: (1 mile walk from the Heath St. stop on the Green E line) Continue on South Huntington Avenue walking towards Jamaica Plain, take a right on Bynner Street and cross the Jamaicaway. Turn left and continue on the paved path that runs along the parkway. At the intersection of Perkins St. and the Jamaicaway enter Jamaica Pond park. Take the next walkway on the right (between the "bowls") to Pinebank.
By Bus: Take the #39 bus to S.Huntington and Perkins Street. Walk a quarter mile down Perkins St. to cross the Jamaicaway. Walk into the park on the paved walk between the "bowls" -- not down to the pond.
