Things seemed very familiar. The names of two of the first-listed urban wilds leaped out at us: Back of the Hill and Cedar Street.

It seemed a high percentage that, out of all of Boston, three urban wilds should be in Roxbury.
Then marching through all of the listings, we found five more: Iroquois Woods, Parker Hilltop/McLaughlin Woodlands, Puddingstone Garden, Rockledge, and Warren Gardens.
Who knew? While none of them are as impressive as the Allandale Woods featured on Liz Kelleher's blog, eight of the urban wilds listed on the City of Boston web site are located in Roxbury.
