Did you know Stony Brook Reservation was one of the first parks protected under the establishment of the state park system in Massachusetts in 1893? This Sunday, August 14, join DCR rangers on a woodland hike from 1 to 2:30 p.m. through Stony Brook Reservation and learn more about the ventures of Charles Eliot and a band of Boston environmentalists as they worked to establish the first regional park system in the country.
This moderate hike will take you through rugged terrain and forested wilderness, and after you are welcome to view Sunfish and Perch swim in the fresh waters of Turtle Pond, also a great spot for fishing. Meet at Olsen Pool at 75 Turtle Pond Parkway in Hyde Park and be ready to uncover the history of our most beloved parks in the Commonwealth.
