The Emerald Necklace

Here's a shot of Olmsted Park, which forms part of what is known as the "Emerald Necklace". The Necklace was designed by Frederick Law Olmsted, Sr. and is made up of six parks, including both the Arboretum and Franklin Park. This website has a handy interactive map so you can get a better idea of where everything is. If you ever visit Boston (or if you live here and haven't done so), please visit these parks. Whether it's during the very green and flower filled summer months, or during the snow covered winter months, the parks are gorgeous and a stone's throw from several T stops!
