The Park is huge has many beautiful fully grown trees, nice lawns. a pond and lot of history. The park has a nice office where we can see pictures of relating to the battle, arms and many more things. There is multi media show. The presentation is good for people who loves and want to know history. The school children... More

This is a National Park, so it has a ranger station, complete with a multi media show. While the presentation feels a little cheesey at times (not any more so than places like the Witch Museum in Salem), it is a very helpful reminder of what happened on April 18, 1775, if you aren't up on your colonial history. The... More

Stopped here on a cold, sunny April Saturday. Great multi-media presentation that our kids, 10 and 7, really enjoyed. Would love to come back in warmer weather and walk the Battle Trail.

Very pretty park that we stopped at while it was snowing. Nice big visitors center as well. Trails and paths to enjoy with places to picnic too.

This place is lovely, we came here when there was still a lot of snow on the ground so could only stick to the paths and not explore as much as we would like to have done so will be back. Standing on the bridge was amazing, stunning views and great history and so peaceful when we were there.

I walk my dog ( on a leash) here at least once a month. The trails are scenic and well maintained and offer a unique historical lesson.

We walked several sections of the battle route, then toured around the Old North Bridge. There is a Junior Ranger packet for the kids. The quick movie at the visitor center was pretty good and one of the rangers was an actor in the movie!

I first walked the battle trail same as the minutemen did over 200 years ago, passing by Samuel Hartwell house and tavern, Captain Will Smith house and grave of British soldier. Trail is easy flat surface and there are several markers detailing significance of all sites. Trail is about a mile. From there, I visited the visitor center where I... More

I cried when I walked over the bridge where the "shot heard round the world" was fired. it was overwhelming to me to stand where our country's history began. this was part of our northeast tour that included many great spots in boston, , new Hampshire and maine
