I really enjoyed walking here with my mom and her dog. It is a fully paved walking path, there are no trees, you will be in the full sun while walking. There is a small covered picnic area however where you can get some shade for a little bit. Nice view of some water and the flowering bushes and trees in the spring are stunning!

Beautiful walk just outside of Boston. Not too crowded despite holiday weekend. easy to keep distance on trails.

This trail is wide and flat and looks great for families. There's a small observation tower that allows you to see the marshland, Boston skyline. and if you look closely a sliver of the Atlantic Ocean. This place also looks great for birders or for those looking to take a picnic.

Easy paved trail around Jamaica Pond. Lots of families and runners out on a sunny Saturday morning. Several picturesque spots to set up for a picnic with great views as well. Perfect for our stroller.

This is a nice and well maintained trail, we love to visit here with our dog. I would not recommend letting your dog off leash, there are just too many people and too many places to run and hide or get very muddy. The whole area around this trail is great as well.

So much cleaner than it used to be. If you are a fan of bridges this route does not disappoint!

Belle Isle Marsh is an urban preserve that contains the last of the saltmarshes that were once prevalent along the coast near Boston. It contains a short loop path of less than a mile, along with some boardwalks and a wooden viewing tower. We started along the flat gravel path and made our way into the marsh. We visited under gray skies but the contrasting colors were still striking. We were surprised to see other visitors, but it appears to be a popular spot for joggers and dog walkers. Belle Isle Marsh is a scenic spot, but probably best seen under blue skies. But if you come in the summer, be prepared with high-test repellant containing DEET. The saltmarsh mosquitoes here are especially vicious, as we found out earlier in August, when we came unprepared and were driven out by the bugs. We visited and reviewed all state parks in MA.

One of the best city park walks I’ve ever done! Fantastic! Beats Central Park, IMO.

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

very easy going and great for a pleasant walk. This would be a nice jogging path too.

Stars are for the fall foliage. Flat, easy to walk, very pretty but that’s about it

Great place to walk your dog. Well trained, friendly dogs are off leash, less friendly dogs are kept on leash.

fun trail through the city of Boston. this is a mix of dedicated bike Lanes and crossings through major intersections. Better in the earlier part of a weekend due to traffic, both people and vehicle kind during a beautiful day.

I work in Boston and walking through or just a break after work is great! New Years Family fireworks are great! 7:00 pm

Lots of bird and rabbits. Very well maintained.

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.

Boston is so rich in the history of our nation and an excellent place to visit with the children. There is so much to explore!

Jamaica Pond is a pretty and easy walk, especially in the fall. The trail around the pond is paved and relatively level. There is a small parking lot for the park on Willow Pond Road as well.

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.

Great trail for walking, running, or just relaxing for a moment on one of the benches. Jamaica Pond is beautiful in the spring when the trees bloom and good for watching some of the waterfowl. Very dog friendly trail as well - you’ll see lots of puppies, runners, and families.
