Historic house with a wonderful view. Great trail system for walking and exploring. We had a picnic on the lawn by the house and hiked the trails. The trails also connect to the Waltham High School. The house wasn't open but interesting to look at from the outside----the trail system is well-marked and rolling. Great for small kids.

Plan B:

Across the street from the Lyman Estate.
