A maze of trails crisscross this forested park which is set back into a west facing hillside with a scenic pond at its base. The park has numerous ledges and massive boulders. A small stream cascades into the pond.
Facilities include a swimming pool, tennis courts, playground equipment, picnic tables, park benches and a playing field. Bathrooms are open in the summer and the pond is groomed for skating in the winter. A detailed brochure on Robin Hood Forest and the Children’s Wood is available from the City of Keene Parks and Recreation Department.
In 1889 George Wheelock donated 12 acres of land to be called “The Children’s Wood”. In 1896 he added 83 acres which he named Robin Hood Forest.
This trail is maintained by City of Keene Parks & Recreation. For more information, please visit Keene Paths on the web, or contact:
