Franklin Park
The final bauble in Boston’s Emerald Necklace, Franklin Park sits on 485 acres that include woodlands with walking paths designed by Frederick Law Olmsted, an 18-hole golf course, and a creepy former bear habitat. The high point at Schoolmaster Hill is named in honor of Ralph Waldo Emerson, who lived in a small cottage here prior to the park’s creation. The true jewel, though, is the Franklin Park Zoo. This place is great for kids, who will go ape over exhibits housing animals from Africa to Australia; a petting zoo and farm area; a walk-through butterfly house; a carousel; and a 10,000-square-foot playground.
