Great, easy, paved walking path. Summer sunsets here are incredible.

We went for a relaxed and leisurely stroll around the pond. We parked at Olmstead park and walked down to Jamaica pond. Beautiful views, shady pathway, dogs on leashes, lots of geese with their younglings. Highly recommend for families and the elderly. Easy stroll. Boat rentals are also available.

I enjoyed the walk and the landscape was pretty on a fall day. The main paths are paved and there are a few smaller trails throughout the route that are unpaved but cleared. I had not walked there before and it was worth the trip.

Nice walk around the parkway. Paved with some small hills but otherwise flat. No parking at the starting point. Will need to drive to the other side of the pond for street parking.

Simple, flat but pretty with nice view of the pond. Good for walking running or biking. Is what it is...no frills, but enjoyable.

Great walk. Paved path is as easy as it gets. Good for kids learning to ride their bikes, strollers, and also wheelchair accessible. Pond wildlife like ducks, geese, and fish when the pond is stocked twice a year. Sailing lessons and canoe/ rowboats for rent make the pond a local destination for frequent and varied uses. Exercize stations throughout make it a go to for JP residents. There is a historic element addressed by signage and representative building foundation on a hill north of the pond. Nice, however often busy, family walk.

I have walked this trail many, many times in all weather conditions. you will almost always have others on the trail, especially in the warmer seasons. It is paved, but the trees and the pond are great.... I have definitely seen people run this loop around the pond...
