Trees alongside Jamaica Pond, designed by Frederick Law Olmstead, are silhouetted by the setting sun. A glacial kettle hole, Olmsted preserved much of the existing vegetation and framed the pond in trees and shrubs in the Emerald Necklace. It is a part of a 1,100-acre chain of parks linked by parkways and waterways in Boston and Brookline, Massachusetts.
