Holiday hassle got you down? Still looking for the perfect gift for the outdoor enthusiast on your list?
How about a $35 DCR ParksPass? The pass provides unlimited day-use parking at the more than 50 DCR state parks that charge parking fees, and is valid January through December of 2010. The happy recipient will have the ParksPass in plenty of time for the warm-weather recreation season. They’ll be able to use it at ocean beaches, swimming ponds, mountain summits, and historic sites as diverse as Salisbury Beach State Reservation, Walden Pond State Reservation in Concord, Wachusett Mountain in Princeton, and Pittsfield State Forest in the Berkshires. Click here for more information about DCR’s ParksPass.
Golfers might enjoy a Happy New Year gift certificate to play at either of DCR’s two golf courses: Leo J. Martin Memorial Golf Course in Weston and Ponkapoag Golf Course in Canton. Martin Memorial has one 18-hole course, and Ponky, as we like to call it, has one 18-hole course and one 9-hole course. Both facilities open in early April, and both charge $19 to play 9 holes and $27-$30 to play 18 holes, depending on the day of the week. You can purchase a gift certificate in any amount. For Martin Memorial, call 781-894-4903, ext. 23. For Ponkapoag, call 781-828-4242. Click here for more information about both DCR golf courses.
