The Arthur Morency woods is a wilderness experience right in the city.

The Arthur Morency woods is a wilderness experience right in the city. This 14.5-acre parcel was intended for use as sewer beds, but was obtained by the Framingham Conservation Commission and has remained undisturbed. The bubbling Lokerville Brook runs through the park. A glacial drumlin covers the park, rising roughly 190 feet high.  Enjoy a short walk through the woods on the trails that run through the middle of the park.

Plan B:

Head to the Natick Mall Children's Play Space for indoor fun.

Where to Eat Nearby:

Shopper's World in Framingham and Natick has several places to eat.

Lots of poison ivy, and some trails are totally overgrown.
