Franklin Park Walking Tours

Franklin Park was designed by Frederick Law Olmsted, America’s preeminent landscape architect. It was the hub of a huge Boston park system. Construction of this system began in 1879 in the Back Bay Fens. Franklin Park’s plan was completed in 1885.  Construction of Franklin Park, containing 527 acres at that time, began in the spring of 1885.  Work continued for 13 years. This brochure lays out two walking tours to allow the visitor an opportunity to explore the park.
