  • The national park and Rood Bridge were a cool stop on our trip here. The Minuteman statue is the unique center point of the memorial here and lots of history in the nearby Hills.  more »
  • Enjoyed a brisk walk with the family and dogs here. The historical importance of this spot is incredible.  more »

  • Classic place to visit. Made me think about how hard early Americans fought and died for our freedom. Freedom is NOT FREE. Beautifully preserved park and site for all to visit. Big free parking lot invites walkable easy access. History still relevant today. Love the colors of the Fall leaves and standing on the bridge to watch the water.
  • We take all of our out of town guests here. Nice presentation. Walk on battle road passes a number historic sites and buildings. In season there are people dressed as people from the 1700's willing to tell you about they represent. You can also drive to Concord and Lexington which are close by
