The City aims to fix erosion issues around the Pinebank area of Jamaica Pond Park with a project this fall.

Pinebank is the high embankment on the north end of the pond. The work would include cleaning a drainage basin on the Pinebank area and regrading paths there and along the park’s ball field, according to Jacque Goddard, a spokesperson for the Boston Parks and Recreation Department.

The work would cost $15,000, which would be paid for by the City and Friends of Jamaica Pond, she said. Because the project would affect a historic park, it needs various reviews and approvals, including by the Boston Landmarks Commission, that are still pending, Goddard said.
