Ravenswood Park Reviews
There are 10 miles of paths and trails - far too much for one visit! It was very pleasant in the shade on a hot day. The trails are fairly narrow and uneven, so best to wear closed shoes. We took... more »
From the parking lot the initial trail is a wide easy road. Nice loop of about two miles. And out of the wind as well. Lots of mature tree growth. more »
Lots of well marked trails. Parking can be a challenge, but parking along the main road does not add too much time. Gorgeous paths and easy walks even for young kids.
This place was amazing! Definitely worth a trip and visit. The trails are extremely well kept, with lots of main trails great for an afternoon stroll, as well as some much more challenging, off the beaten path trails we enjoyed. I was out here with my dog, and we were able to find a nice nearly 5 mile loop and easily found our way back. The trails are very well marked with maps and numbered posts, so if you pay attention you can find your way. We ran into lots of friendly people and dogs, ranging in ages from early 20's to 80's. There are trails for every type. One of the things I really liked was that dogs are allowed off leash once past the entrance, as it's clearly marked. Definitely worth another visit, I just wish it were closer to where we live! By far one of the best walking ares we've found in the northeastern Massachusetts area!
