Celebrating Parks & Community
Frederick Law Olmsted’s Bicentennial inspires this day-long celebration of shared use, shared health and shared power along Olmsted’s Emerald Necklace linear park system.
Join neighbors and friends to enjoy what makes you most grateful for YOUR parks! Come together for a special program of picnicking, dancing, creating, learning, relaxing & connecting.
Explore the parks with DJs on trikes, scavenger hunts, bike decorating and riding, walking tours, doggy meet-cutes, selfie destinations and more. Extra restrooms, signage, food trucks and volunteers will be on site. Look for treats and surprises throughout the parks.
1-6pm, Saturday, September 24. Rain date: Sunday, September 25
All 5.5 miles of the Emerald Necklace, including Charlesgate Park, Back Bay Fens, Riverway, Olmsted Park, Jamaica Pond, Arnold Arboretum and Franklin Park
This event is part of Parks as Platform, a program of Olmsted Now: Greater Boston’s Olmsted Bicentennial.
