Welcome to the Emerald Necklace

In the heart of Boston and extending to Brookline, the historic Emerald Necklace park system serves as the backyard for city residents and a destination for more than one million visitors each year. Stretching from Back Bay to Dorchester, this inviting green space connects people and nature, just as landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted intended when he designed it more than 100 years ago.

Today, the six parks under the Emerald Necklace Conservancy’s stewardship offer a range of experiences — from quiet time on a shaded bench to recreational activities like sailing, hiking, golf or softball. With an arboretum and a zoo, the Emerald Necklace’s attractions are as diverse as the New England seasons. Come explore the many things to do in Boston!

Join us at 7pm, Thursday (1/28), for a webinar on racial equity in urban climate change, with author & Planetizen blogger, Professor Joan Fitzgerald of Northeastern. http://bit.ly/UrbanClimateEquity
