  • Attended the Patriot's Day battle re-enactment. Really well organized for parking, viewer areas, narration, etc. You should attend once in your life. Nice park. Simple monument at the Old North...

  • Great trails. Mostly returned to the state of 1776. You can just imagine the farmers hiding behind the trees taking pot shots at the Redcoats and inflicting terror. The Old North Bridge is well reproduced. Excellent central exhibit with great interpretation and book selection. Hartwell Tavern is well preserved and presented. Excellent overall preservation and interpretation. Highly recommended.
  • I was in this area at the end of winter. One of the main trails we walked on was such a beautiful place, including passing on a straight route full of trees, walk around a big magnificent pond full of ducks. It’s possible to fish there. The region was so big to finish walking around in a day. Therefore, I can say it’s a good place to visit multiple times.
