Victory Garden

Cultivated during WWII to ease demand on the food supply, it is one of the last continually operating Victory Gardens in existence today and the oldest remaining wartime 'Victory Garden.' Today it is a well-loved community garden situated in the Back Bay Fens section of the Emerald Necklace. In order to get a plot, you must be a Boston resident and have volunteered. In total, the  7.5-acre area has over 500 gardens.

 

Note: The Victory Gardens are beyond this guided Emerald Necklace tour loop. Keep walking along Park Drive for two minutes (about 400 feet) to reach them.
