Favorite place to run
When I was living in the area, this was a place that got me into running. I lived on the emerald belt and running to Jamaica Pond and around gave me a solid 3.5 mile run. The pond itself is 1.5mile loop and the entire thing is pretty scenic. I always wanted to take a rowboat out on the water but never did. Maybe one day!
