Nice place to walk just about any time of year. Relaxing, different than many New England hikes and just outside BassPro so near convenient shopping.

We always walk the bog when we are in the Patriot Place area. Right behind the Bass Pro Shop. Open dawn to dusk (use driveway on right side of Bass store). Leisurely walk around a bog/nature area that is full of wildlife. Would also recommend...More

We had a great time on this hidden gem. It is behind the Bass Pro Shop and can be easily missed. It is well maintained and just a great place to be. The bonus for us was watching all the turtles. There was a lady...More

Hidden behind the ruckus of Patriots Place, this little gem is a great 'get away' when you can't really get away! Access from behind the outdoors sports business, it's fairly easy to get to. Easy walk, active/working cranberry bogs, it's my 'go to'.

Ran into this little gem. Very quiet and an easy walk. Beautiful spring day. I walked in flip flops.

Nice short walk behind Bass Pro Shops. Exit through Blue Fin restaurant. A few hilly areas, my 4 and 6 year old did fine. There are signs throughout with cranberry facts. Worth the 15-20 minutes.

It's small - .5 mile loop but very interesting. I have never seen a cranberry bog before. We went in the winter so there wasn't much to see but I still liked it. Would like to see it in the summer.

This is a great little trail around a small cranberry bog that is right behind Bass Pro Shop at Patriot Place. It mostly flat but the hilly part is very easy. You have the bog, some woods and of course fresh air. There's also a...More

I'm not sure what camp you are referring to but when we were in Foxboro, we went to the Cranberry Bog and to Patriot Place. We then went nearby to Plymouth to Plimouth Plantation which is wonderful and very family oriented.

Yes they are. Took my dog a couple of months ago and we weren't the only ones :-)

If the stroller is heavy duty, I'm sure you could manage. It is not a concrete or boardwalk, but a regular walking trail. It is fairly smooth/even ground. I do not recall there being a lot of holes or anything, but it is... More
