  • This park is huge, right along the Merrimack river. Plenty of hiking trails, great for family picnics and frisbee games. Bring your horse to ride the trails or your dog, you can even mountain bike her...  more »

  • A very special place for me and my family. Been going there for years. Memorial day weekend the rhodies and azaleas bloom and its stunningly beautiful. They have fun festivals, like a haunted trail walk in October. They have art exhibits and sculptures every year. And winter cross country skiing. I even had a wedding there a very long time ago! Great place!
  • Beautiful place. We went with our 1 year old. You can push a carriage down the trails, but some parts are difficult due to terrain. Beautiful spot for a picnic as there are many trees for cover and the open grass area is accessible from the parking lot and is close to the restrooms.
  • Wonderful place for a walk. Long trails... Along the river, through gardens, and woods. A really nice old estate. Something is blooming all summer long... Incredible specimens of Rhody, Azelea and Mountain Laurel. Great birding too!
  • Nice but seems a bit run down, gardens are not kept up, the park map is not good enough to really get you around. Nice walk but not amazing for sure
  • I love this place. It is right on the river with beautiful views. Great for walking or running. There are also live performances or art shows going on here often. Stumble upon something new every time you go.
