Very big park, beautiful all year, but especially in the spring and summer. It's a whopping 200 acres, and there are many trails to choose from! Some parts can get a bit muddy if you go right after it rains, but that's part of the fun in at, and it is a wetland after all. There are different parts that each give different feelings too. First, by the parking lot, there is a man-made field, with a concrete trail going around it. There are picnic tables here, too. This gives off a city park vibe. Secondly, the is a part full of grasses, but not too many trees. It's nice to walk through, and it seems to be a good place to do some recreational droning or some model rocket launches. (Just make sure you leave with everything you brought.) Finally, there is the forest wetlands area. This is a great place to hiking and all the beautiful trees are over here. Great hiking trails, and I would recommend to anyone who likes to be outdoors!

Go online to review the maps and plan your own hike around this beautiful natural reserve and learn about the very interesting history. http://cummingspark.org/photowalks.
Afterwards choose from dozens of fine restaurants for a nice meal.
You can get there from Boston by public transportation. Take the Redline from Boston to Alewife Station then the MBTA bus #350. Get off at Oracle.

One place to break away to take in a large 200+ acres of wooded and open field area in Burlington, MA. Mary Cummings Park. Trails every week are opening up for walking through to view nature at it's living best with open fields of flowers, Monarch Butterflies, small animals and birds, and ponds with living organisms, undergrowth, bushes and trees, that make your walk a full appreciation of God's work. Come and walk through at your leisure or take part in a formal educational tour every Saturday morning from 10:00 to 12:00 with an expert guide to learn about various things within the park.

Big wide open field next parking area for touch football or soccer. Interlaced network of trails include old stone walls and an area for radio controlled planes.

Mary Cummings Park is a good place for a walk in the Burlington area. Bring bug spray, and wear sneakers and socks, not sandals, as parts of the trails are a bit overgrown, and there is always concern for ticks. The trails are easy, and have enough signage to prevent getting lost. There are at least three parking areas that surround the park, but facilities are minimal.

Wonderful walk with kids where they can be the lead the way following the map provided at the kiosk over bridges where trolls might live and maybe find the airplanes. Great fun.

I go here often. It's a lovely gem and I can walk around and see a lot of different kinds of natural settings such as fields and wetlands and hills all in the same small area. I feel that the large-scale development taking place around this small park is degrading the park, though. Some of the trails have turned into year-round streams due to stormwater runoff from the increase in impervious land around the park. I hope that we can save this place.

Really unique place. Parking sucks since it;s gravel and small. But you can fly model planes here, and there are tons of easy walking trails next to it.

This is a gem of a park with some decent trails that you can hick on a lunch hour. Good parking lot and from other entrances smaller lots and street parking. Playing fields for soccer, a few picnic tables and a large radio control area for flying , you have to reserve time for that. the trails do have some mushy areas so be sure to have decent, waterproof footwear if there's been rain.

I have been to MCP many times, but it was my first visit that I still remember. My dog and I were walking along a tree lined path when we came upon a meadow and it was breathtaking. I couldn't believe that I had lived so close to this park and never visited before. Definitely worth a trip.
