Lovely park with open fields, woods, streams, colonial stone walls and marked trails. They have a website and have a different themed guided activity every month. Easy to get to with information kiosks and plenty of parking.

Wonderful walk with kids where they can be the lead the way following the map provided at the kiosk over bridges where trolls might live and maybe find the airplanes. Great fun.

This is just a great piece of open land in Burlington to be able to wander thru with the dog. If you like the peace and quiet without having to go to far, this is great

No, this park doesn't have the name recognition that our beloved Middlesex Fells or the Arnold Arboretum have for the outdoorsy types to get out and enjoy nature within a 15-20 minute drive of the city. But don't let that hamper potential plans to visit...More

Nice place to wander and think. With all the traffic around it, not so quiet. Easy access. Should improve with age.

There are acres of open field for letting your dog run, It's required that dog feces be picked and removed. Marked trails require a leach as others are walking the trails.
