  • Great place to relax or run around. The path all the way around is gravel and is 1.5 miles. People run or walk in both directions. Very few bikers use it. 
  • It's wonderfully peaceful and relaxing amid the hubbub of Boston to walk around the Reservoir, watching the ducks enjoying the scenic views. 
  • Beautiful location year-round. Enjoy a walk or run on the 1.55mi dirt track. Great for people watching, bird watching, and just relaxing on a Spring and Summer's day. This park is on the National Register of Historic Places and is a City of Boston Landmark. OPEN - Dawn to Dusk, 7-Days a week, year-round
  • Best running spot in the area. Very attractive and relaxing. Little hiking paths surround the main trail.
  • Great place to run a mile+ and great views!
  • Gorgeous. Watch a sunset, take a lap, enjoy and unwind
  • Great 1.5 Mile circular soft path for running and walking. Benches along the way and a public Porta - potty at the start / entrance (near old stone building). Ducks, water, trees, etc., ...a very tranquil place. Enjoy!
