This extensive Park is next to Menlo Park Mall. There are walking paths, parking lots, basketball and Tennis Courts, a lake, theatrical events during the summer and other events throughout the year. Take a stroll and relax. A lovely spot.

The park is good for walking and trout fishing during state stocking in April. There is plenty of shore access and a large board walk with seating. The park is well kept including the bathrooms thanks to the park crew.

I’m not sure about the walking trails , I just go there to fresh water fish 🎣. I’m sorry I couldn’t be more helpful. You might want to contact Middlesex County Parks.

Glacier Park- should we do Waterton Lakes N.P.? (10 Replies)
2 years ago we did a road trip mid-Sept., stopping first at Theodore Roosevelt Park for a few days, then on to Glacier, then south to Y.P. et al. We only spent one day/night at Glacier and are thinking of doing another road trip this Sept, and stay longer at Glacier We stayed at the Lodge in St. Mary and while pricey, was very nice. We prefer to have a flexible schedule and not have to be somewhere just because we have a reservation. I was wondering what the Waterton Lakes National Park area...More

Is your vacation goal scenic auto touring or is it mostly hiking? Besides those things, what else do you enjoy on your trips...shopping, dining, photo ops? .................... Yes, that little cut across from Cut Bank toward Cardston works. Just make double sure the border station there is open. Waterton is worth the trip but not for several days. Two nights should do it I think. Reservations there are still a good idea in September as it is fall color time. Actually the weather in...More

Roosevelt Park in Albuquerque (4 Replies)
How safe is the park nowadays? I've heard horror stories in the past of illegal activities and such. It was such a nice childhood memory for me and wanted to visit again but am unsure of the atmosphere.

It's been a long, long time since I've gone by that park. I'm rarely in that part of town anymore, so I can't really say but I'm betting things have improved since those days (decades ago?) when it fell from grace. Such a pretty park. I recall it was popular for dogs chasing frisbees. I haven't heard about it lately, but I think the area in general has improved. I'll take a look next time I'm around there.

Where to spend a day? (2 Replies)
We're taking the train cross country and only have one day we can spend in ND (never enough vacation days!). Where do you suggest we go? It seems the most reasonable stops (not middle of the night & rental cars available) would be Minot or Williston... Theo. Roosevelt park looks great, but will it be too much driving? Where do you suggest? Thanks!

You did not mention what time of year your trip will be. I'm assuming summer? If so, then yes, I would agree with a jumping off point of Williston to see TRNP. I do not think the north unit would be an unreasonable day trip at all. Be sure to check into hotel / car cost. EVERYTHING in Williston doubled in price during the oil boom, but it may be more reasonable now due to the dramatic slow down in activity there.
