125 Arborway, Jamaica Plain, MA 02130-3500 617-524-1718
Description: JAMAICA PLAIN. The development of this beautiful park was funded by James Arnold, who left it to Harvard University upon his death. After selling the park to the city, Harvard regained possession of it and pays only $1 a year (for 1000 years) for it. Today, the 265-acre grounds are home to over 4000 types of trees. The Jamaica Pond also makes up part of the peaceful surroundings.
