Jamaica Plain, or more commonly called “JP,” is a dynamic neighborhood filled with diversity, green spaces, and strong local businesses. The Emerald Necklace and Franklin Park surround the neighborhood and it’s also home to Jamaica Pond, which makes for a gorgeous stroll. It’s always refreshing to walk around JP and get a feel for the prominent sense of community. Come by for one of the many communal events here, including local outdoor music festivals and spring fairs. JP is home to lots of the medical community who commute to Longwood Medical Center (LMA).
