About Franklin Park
Frederick Law Olmsted designed Franklin Park in the 1890s. It is located in the geographical center of the City, connecting the neighborhoods of Roxbury, Dorchester, Jamaica Plain, Mattapan, and Roslindale. With its acres of woods and scenic views, Franklin Park has long been considered Boston’s “country park.”
The 485-acre park remains Boston’s largest open space. It is loved by residents and visitors for its miles of trails, playing fields, historical features and so much more. Some of the park’s most notable attractions include the historic Bear Cages, Scarboro Pond, the William Devine Golf Course, a renowned cross-country running course, Franklin Park Zoo, White Stadium, Elma Lewis Playstead, and multiple playgrounds.
