The Emerald Necklace’s 1,100 acres are home to more than 30 bridges. Connecting neighbors and bridging communities is what the Necklace was designed to do nearly 150 years ago by famed landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted, who would have turned 200 this year. The Emerald Necklace and our shared green spaces continue to be some of the primary places of community connection amidst the ongoing pandemic.
Lights in the Necklace celebrates the power of our urban parks to bring us together, inspire us and light the way in challenging times. We hope you enjoy the emerald glow in several iconic Emerald Necklace parks as they light the way through winter into spring.
Event begins at dusk.
