This lovely wooded park provides refuge from the urban landscape. A short but hilly stroll includes a gazebo and historic tower as points of interest: great views from both locations. This trail connects New North End neighborhoods and the Route 127 Bike Path. The Cycle the City loop also goes through the park. The park has a playground near the parking lot and hosts a weekly farmer's market in the summer.
