    "A great place to take a ride on your bike or go for a stroll. Fishing is available for those with a MA fishing license, and sailboats and rowboats are available for hourly rent in the summer months." Read more

    Jamaica Pond is a not so hidden gem. If you want to avoid the crowds head toward Brookline and drop down into the woods around Ward Pond and the Greenway to Brookline. Link to map. Read more

    According to the USGS, the name Jamaica derives from an Indian name meaning "abundance of beavers" While you're here, check out the boathouse "balcony" for a great view/photo op.

    Beautiful Olmsted park in JP, great for a picnic. But no bikes, no skates, etc. kind of ridiculous.

    Around April/May they clean the water and stock it with fish. Get your fishing rods ready! Do not eat Fish if caught after July. Slightly dirtier.

    Watch your self! Not for robbers or anything, but if you're running watch for walkers and if youre walking watch for runners

    It's a welcome site when trying to get away from the city, either to walk, bike, or simply drive by.

    Don't leave your boat in the middle of the water. That's not a parking spot, man.

    Trying to run here is like an episode of The Walking Dead, be prepared to dodge walkers staggering aimlessly in the narrow path while trying not to trip over a dog or toddler.

    Please do not ride your bike here. There is a rule against it for a reason.
