My husband and I had a great walk around the lake under the shade of big trees. It is clean and full of nature. Most hikers seemed friendly. We had a nice day on that park. We don't have to pay any fee.

Enjoyed the playground and a great hike around the lake. My grandson walked most of the way, so it wasn't a serious trek, but a nice stroll. He fed some ducks, ran back and forth across the bridge and said hello to everyone we met. Lots of bikers, hikers and walkers. Really nice place to spend a day.

The park includes a few sports fields, but the real gem is a pond with an about 1.2 miles trail around it. A nice and peaceful place, mostly in shade of the trees. It's perfect for running or a walk - a lot of nature, water, trees, birds. And a relatively short length makes it very manageable. No fees.

As out-of-towners with a walking routine we looked for a spot close to our B&B and found Livingston Park's walking trails. Three times around Dorrs Pond equals one hour/3.5 miles for us which is perfect. The trails are wonderfully maintained and the other walkers are very friendly. The people of Manchester are lucky to have this spot.

We met as a group last May. It was our semi-annual walk of our grammar school group. Had a great lunch at the Puritan Restaurant then walked it off on the trails. Great fun!

I used to visit this park as a child. GREAT improvement! The playground area is clean and we'll maintained. The pond is clean. The nature walk was a good family walk.

If going with kids (little boys and girls), keep a close eye on them and be ready to intervene -watch the adult males "hanging out." The place is nice and tranquil inside the city, close to everything. Forested trails around the pond etc. and even accessible during the hard bits of Winter. A definite keeper on the list of quick...

There is a beautiful, maintained walking path around the pond here. Great place for a relaxing walk.

I've been to Livingston Park/Dorr Pond a couple of times, as it is one of few walking spaces in the woods near downtown Manchester, and is easily accessible. The trail is well-trodden and well-maintained and is a short 25- minute loop around the small pond. I always enjoy coming here where dogs can be walked on-leash and the people are... More
