Alewife Reservation is a great spot for a short nature walk with kids of any age. The paths are wide, flat, and great for strollers and bikes. Bring binoculars to look for interesting birds, a frisbee to play in the field, or even fishing poles to fish in the Little River! The 120-acre reservation is home to many unique species of wildlife, including beavers, turtles, hawks, muskrats, ospreys, and more. Best of all, it's right next to the Alewife MBTA station for easy access.
