Beaver Brook Reservation is a series of green spaces connecting parks and trails. This section of Beaver Brook Reservation offers paved pathways, wooded trails, picnic areas, and open fields. This is a great park for an afternoon picnic, short hike, or bring the whole family for a field day!  There is even a spray park for those hot summer days!

Access this park on Waverly-Oaks road and you can walk follow the path through the woods, across Trapelo Road, and continue up Mill Street to visit the frog ponds.

Plan B:

Visit the National Archives, just down the street on Trapelo Road. See for hours and more information.


Where to Eat Nearby:

Continue down Trapelo Road into Belmont for multiple dining options.
