Franklin Park - Jamaica Plain

Franklin Park is where the Franklin Park Zoo and a large public golf course are located. It's also a great place to jog, take a walk, or have a picnic. A lot of people go there on holiday weekends. If you'd like a more peaceful place to see, check out the Forest Hills Cemetery, on the other side of Morton Street.

Circuit Drive/Jewish War Veterans Drive runs through the park and goes around much of the golf course. However, about a third of Circuit Drive is closed to vehicles. In this episode of Scootin' in Boston, the Poor Student rides around the park and shows you the golf course and the entrance to the zoo. The tour starts at the usual location, the corner of Forest Hills St. and Williams St.
