The Eliot Schoolyard offers an oasis of green space in the heart of Jamaica Plain, in a residential neighborhood just off Centre Street's business district. The yard surrounds our 1831 schoolhouse, still very much in use today as an active site for craft education.

We offer half- and full-yard rentals for organizations as well as smaller community gatherings.
