Jamaica Pond

Lonely Planet review

Once a summer destination for city residents, Jamaica Pond is now a tranquil urban oasis, perfect for paddling or rather tame sailing. A 1.4-mile paved path circles the glacial kettlehole. Rowboats and sailboats are available for rental at the 1913 Tudor boat house. The pond is even stocked with fish, though you'll need your own equipment and a MA fishing license.
