    This large park is close to many museums and cultural institutions. It's a little wild; don't expect a manicured environment. Still a good green space in a crowded city and a good play for a hike. Accessible by public transit.

    Took out lunch today from a place around the corner and drove to the marsh to enjoy our food on this glorious day at one of the picnic tables. They have replaced the trash cans since we were last there, so you don’t have to take your trash with you. Paths are clear, place has been well maintained during Covid. Amazing piece of nature in the city limits.

    The Audubon Boston Nature Center is a very nice break from urban Boston for a couple of hours or so. It has several walking trails of from about .5 to one mile that are well maintained. We had no trouble walking them with a stroller. We were there for their annual Rockin’ with Raptors event. It was very fun with food, music and exhibits that were very kid friendly.

    It's hard work but someone has to do it. And these guys do. The Conservancy" part in this review's title sets this apart from the idyllic Emerald Necklace Parks open space we all meander when visiting these parks.

    Stop by the Shattuck Visitor Center and pick up maps or just say "thank you" for all you do. it does, after all, take an enormous amount of effort to maintain Olmstead's 1,100 priceless and beautiful acres of greater value than 1,100 actual Emerald necklaces.
