Jamaica Plain Homes for Sale
Jamaica Plain was often referred to in the 19th century as "the Eden of America" due to its vast amount of greenery and significant portion of Boston's Emerald Necklace of parks, including: the Olmsted Park, the Jamaica Pond, the Arnold Arboretum and the Franklin Park. But there is so much more to this neighborhood than the lovely greenery.

Known as “JP” to locals, Jamaica Plain has attracted a large community of college-educated professionals, political activists and artists. Jamaica Plain spans all types of cultures, which is evident in the vast amount of food choices throughout the neighborhood. There is also a large presence of local galleries, bookstores, and arts centers.
Jamaica Plain is a perfect neighborhood for people working and going to school in and around the City. With the Orange Line and several bus routes running through the neighborhood, access to the rest of the City is readily available.
