Southwest Corridor trail walk, Ethiopian food, and more!

  • This location is shown only to members

  • We will walk part of the Southwest Corridor trail from the Forest Hills T-station to Tremont, then up Tremont to Huntignton Ave for the "Open Streets on the Avenue of the Arts" event. 1.5 miles of Huntington Avenue, outbound side only, between Belvidere Street and Brigham Circle, will be closed to vehicle traffic for this event. We will meander along the route of the festival and then over to the Addis Red Sea restaurant for an Ethiopian lunch (544 Tremont).

    Total distance is 5.1 miles. Afterwards, take the T back to our cars at Forest Hills.

    There is a pay parking lot at Forest Hills and some free on street parking nearby.

    The linear Southwest Corridor Park follows the Orange Line rapid transit system from downtown Boston to Forest Hills station in Jamaica Plain. In its entirety, the Southwest Corridor Park is 4.7 miles in length with a total of 52 acres of parkland. Twenty-seven of these acres are in the Heart of the City. The southern sections of the Southwest Corridor Park include tennis courts, basketball courts, expansive open areas, five tot-lots, fountains, three community gardens, passive sitting areas, and paved biking and walking paths. Portions of the Orange Line are covered with decking to provide space for parkland and playground facilities. The designers of the Southwest Corridor Park referred to the park as a "new strand of the Emerald Necklace."
