There are over 9,500 trees in Boston’s Emerald Necklace which spans 1,100 acres from Charlesgate in Back Bay to Franklin Park in Dorchester. The Boston Landmark celebrates the transition into spring with its annual “Lights in the Necklace” celebration.
The Olmstead Tree Society, the conservancy’s tree care program, is lighting the way to spring this winter with the bedazzling of several trees scattered throughout the park! This year, four major locations across the necklace will be fully aglow a stunning Celtic green!
In the Back Bay and Fenway neighborhood, you can adore the glowing lights at the Charlesgate Park Tree area and Shattuck Visitor Center. By the center of the Emerald Necklace, check out the lights at the Jamaica Pond Boathouse, and at the other tail end find lights illuminating the Walnut Avenue Entrance in Dorchester.
