Beacon Hill Park is a great place to go for a walk in any season. There are many trails, flowers, and water features. You can visit the petting zoo and see the baby goats. There are free outdoor tennis courts as well.

There are walking trails to the top of the hill with great views over the water. Look out for the peacocks.

Just around the corner from downtown; was recommended by a couple of locals. Great for a leg stretch. The trees, ponds, peacocks, green space, monuments, everything - was great. Would recommend for anyone wanting some green space time away from downtown concrete.

The walks we did in Dec 2010 and this year (Nov 2018) were so refreshing, full of great vibes and energy. The splendeur of the trees in that park is truly amazing! No joke, you have to walk through Beacon Hill and reach Mile Zero...More
