Urban Wild in Boston

Two "wild" places to go in Boston:

Condor Street Urban Wild

This former marine industrial site, which borders Chelsea Creek has been redeveloped into an urban wild. The restored site features salt marshes, meadow grasses, and other coastal habitat elements as well as walking paths, a boardwalk, sculptures, and a viewing platform overlooking the creek.

Arnold Arboretum

The 265-acre arboretum is a “link” in the city’s Emerald Necklace, a collection of six parks designed by legendary landscape architect Frederick Law Olmstead. Nestled in nearby Jamaica Plain, the arboretum is the nation’s oldest, and a leading center for plant study.
