Boston and Brookline’s Emerald Necklace Parks, including the Back Bay Fens, Riverway, Olmsted Park, Jamaica Pond, Arnold Arboretum and Franklin Park, remain open at this time.
During this period of social distancing, we at the Emerald Necklace Conservancy understand the critical importance of park access and the physical and mental health benefits of spending limited time outside. To help you access and use the Emerald Necklace parks safely outdoors or from the comfort of your home, we’ve compiled a list of resources and tips – and we remind you to maintain the recommended distance of a minimum of 6 feet from other individuals in the parks when enjoying time outdoors.
With 1,100 acres of parkland – that’s more than 800 football fields – the Emerald Necklace is here for you.
Check back weekly as we create and share more activities for children, families and park explorers.
