  • Great place. Not the Largest place like this but a lot of interesting features packed inside. It has a little something for everyone. Great for mountain biking hiking dog walking.
  • Ravenswood Park is a wonderful forest reserve with trails through the woods and it's maintained by the Trustees of the Reservation. A great spot to commune with nature. It's really quite beautiful--the trails are a nice variety. I saw people cross country skiing this past weekend, I saw people walking, lots of dogs were out and about enjoying the day--grabbing sticks, making friends, running around and jumping up on my jeans leaving muddy paw prints :)--photographers, speed walkers, mosey-ers, and even a toddler toddling down the trail. I brought my camera and loved seeing the melting ice and snow, the bare branches of the trees catching the light. It was just a beautiful nature walk with the quiet forest around us. There are trails for everyone--rolling trails, long trails, short trails, gravel trails (aka old Carriage trails), wide main trails, and more narrow bumpy-forest-y trails. There are beautiful vernal ponds to check out during the wet seasons--listen for the animals and bugs that surround them. The web site says there are 10 miles of trails to explore. My mom loves to watch birds and this park has a ton of them.
  • Great place to take a nice hike
