just north of the intersection of Nashua Rd, and Mammoth Rd.
this park is best known for use by the youth baseball,
soccer, and football leagues. To the left of the
Mammoth Rd. entrance is a pond with a paved 2/10 mile
walking path encircling it. This is a great path for
exercise or to just walk and enjoy the pond; great for
pushing little ones in strollers, too.
For a longer walk, drive past the pond
and the ball fields along the gravel road/parking lot. Park
your car just past the big rock in the parking lot and
proceed on foot along the gravel path which leads to the
playground, on the right, and to the Beaver Brook, about 300
yards along the path.
Just before you reach the end of the
gravel path look to the left and right and see the remains
of the trolley tracks. On the right, you'll see a
large filled area that raised the tracks above the wetland.
It is possible to launch a canoe into the brook from the
area just at the end of the gravel path but the access to
the brook is steep. On the far right and left, the end
of the former trolley tracks, the park turns into private
property. Please respect the neighbors.
This park has ample parking (except on
game days) and the walk along the path is gentle with a
slope that looks steeper on the return trip. The
gravel path is suitable for most walkers. The park is posted
"NO Hunting". Note that the boundaries of the park are not
yet marked but if you follow the gravel road you will be in
the park all the way.
