Brookline: Park walks coming up


Anyone wanting to join one of three free upcoming walks of parks designed by Frederick Law Olmsted will need to make a reservation soon. Next Sunday at 1 p.m., the National Park Service will hold a “family-friendly” tour of Olmsted Park, on the Brookline-Jamaica Plain line. The park is one of the lesser-known “jewels” in the Emerald Necklace. On May 20 at 1 p.m., the walk will be around Jamaica Pond. And on June 3 at 10 a.m., a ranger will guide a walk of the Back Bay Fens. For details and to reserve a spot, visit www.nps.gov/frla or call 617-566-1689, ext. 211. Andreae Downs

Because of a reporting error, a Globe West Community Briefing item for Brookline on May 6 contained incorrect information about National Park Service walks in parks designed by Frederick Law Olmsted. Only the Back Bay Fens walk at 10 a.m. June 3 requires reservations, which can be arranged by calling 617-566-1689, ext. 265. For information about that walk, as well as the Olmsted park family tour Sunday and the May 20 Jamaica Pond walk, call 617-566-1689 and ask for visitor services.
