“Excellent and pretty walk around a lovely reservoir. Great for dogs.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

A beautiful part of Cambridge, be sure to take the time to walk around the pond; it's not too strenuous but you do get a work out. Lots of dogs (on leashes) and kids and bikes. Watch out for poison ivy and careful where you park; some places are for residents only.

“Great for walking, biking,dog walking, jogging, baby strollers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012

I live across the street from this and what a gift. I walk or bike the almost 3 mile path often. Avoid the weekends if you don't want crowds. Beautiful setting.

“lovely place to walk your dog”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

Don't walk around the pond if you're not fond of dogs, that's for sure. This is a place where dogs can be dogs, running through the woods relatively freely (Cambridge dogs can be off-leash, thank goodness). Runners+joggers seem to like this loop, too, as well as your casual bikers and strollers. My only wish is that people would smile more. Come on, this is a beautiful part of Cambridge! Why the serious,scowling, frowning faces, huh?

“Escape the heat and dust of day....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2012

lovely place for a walk, run or stroll. Use it to hear the birds whistle and catch your breath. De-stress, rest and restore - everything will be there when you get back.
