Ryan Playground is a family favorite, with its spray park, playground, and ball fields

Ryan Playground is a family favorite, with its spray park, playground, and ball fields. Combine a visit to the playground with a trip to the Neponset River Greenway for a longer adventure.  Visitors can access the greenway from the parking lot of the playground.  Near to the playground on the greenway are many fascinating spots along the shoreline of the river to explore.
