  • I love this Park it is one of my favorite. One of my friends got married here, also I started going there since I was I'm about 13 years old. It is awesome because they have a very good playground fenced-in for small kids. They have a very large field which is used for soccer games however most of the time it is empty but my favorite part is the pond. There is a beautiful gazebo on one side and a beautiful little arc bridge on the other side really an amazing Park to go for a walk by yourself or with the kids.
  • This is one of my favorite places to visit whenever I need relaxing time. You can walk in the park and around the pond, easily spending more than an hour. On top of the hill, you will enjoy the great view of the Boston skyline. Even though this place is great in the spring and the summer time, it is not bad in the winter as well. There are limited number of barbeque areas which makes it great for a weekend get-together with friends and family. If you are into photography, this place will offer great opportunities where you can enjoy the several nature shots, and children flying kites most of the weekends.
  • Love this place! Nice garden with trees & grass in summer, very looooong-slope for sleigh riding in winter. Outdoor rink for Ice skating also prepared(only during season). I really like reading some books sitting on the bench under shadow of trees at playground(even tough that place is for small kids :) ) As sometimes wedding couples are there for ceremony or taking photos, you can see and hear joyful happiness.
  • Lovely park, part of the Green Dog program where you can let your dog run free. Acres of beautiful land and hills to walk on.
  • This is a great park with a playground for little kids, a baseball field, bar-b-que grills and pavilions, a pond with a paved path around it, open fields for free play, and some hiking areas. It's always clean and the parking is free. Great use of public space.
