yesterday we went to the giant park near our house, and it was fucking glorious. so pretty! so much to explore! we barely even saw about a quarter of it, i think, but it was really awesome.
we went by farm pond park (next to farm pond, duh) and walked through part of cushing memorial park. i only knew a little bit about each before we actually checked it out, primarily from seeing the giant portions of cushing park when we drove by. but after our trip there, it’s like, YES! we have an awesome park to supplement the slightly smaller awesome park by our house and now we have to go all the time!
Cushing Memorial Park: Has entrances off of Dudley Road and Winter Street. Located on 57 acres, it is the site of a WWII Army Hospital. The park offers walking and passive recreation areas. It also houses Cushing Memorial Chapel, The Academy Building and The Cushing Building. The park is maintained by the Town Parks & Recreation Department.
Farm Pond: Located on Dudley Road, offers fishing, boat access, and walking trails. It is also the site of the start of the Boston Komen 3-Day Walk. This area is maintained by the Town Parks & Recreation Department.
afterwards, we went home to have some memorial day celebratory grilling and i made the world’s most awesome burgers (so far). god bless our local delis and bakeries for keeping us in such delicious fare.
