One of the largest undeveloped green spaces in Mattapan

Gladside Urban Wild is one of the largest, undeveloped green spaces in Mattapan at 10 acres in size.  The wild preserves rich areas of upland and lowland habitats that are connected by four trails.  The trails offer the opportunity for a loop walk through the wild, where visitors can find oaks, birch, hickory and pine trees, and a wetland area.  There is a vernal pool  that is perfect to explore right after the winter thaw when it teems with life.

 

Plan B:

Head down Gladeside to the Ryan Playground with its spray park and bathhouse.

Where to Eat Nearby:

The closet eateries are in Mattapan Square
