    A pure, glacial kettlehole, Olmsted described Jamaica Pond as "favoring great beauty in reflections and flickering half-lights."

    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.

    Today, the boathouse at Jamaica Pond provides facilities for sailing and the beautiful path around the pond is a favorite of joggers and dog walkers alike. The Conservancy has used the Sugar Bowl next to the Pond for its first year of Movies in the

     

    Park. The fields above the Sugar Bowl are the perfect place to picnic or play a little wiffle ball with your family.
