We are fortunate to live nearby to Carlisle Reservation for frequent hikes and also the special events they offer, such as Halloween and Christmas lighting trails, maple sugaring, the raptor birds, etc. Our grandchildren have always enjoyed the train rides they offer at certain times...More

Carlisle Reservation has a lot of different areas to it. I see reviews about a bird rescue - I don't know anything about that, but I know there are numerous trails. There's an entire equestrian area. Really spacious metropark, a lot of trails.

Really cool to see the different hawks and birds that have been rescued, It's cool because it's outside too!

Such a wonderful facility with lots of scheduled activities for all ages. We try to hike each of the trails every year, and this park has some of the best and often less traveled trails.

Beautiful parks especially during the holidays because of the decorations & things to do. Great for families.

We came to see the raptors and decided to walk in the woods. The kids spent a while playing troll under the bridge. :).

Big park. Can walk for hours, albeit trails poorly marked and lack loops. Always enjoy the raptors!!

We had a beautiful Saturday afternoon learning about how maple syrup is made, from tapping the trees to tasting the end syrup product. The staff was able to share their knowledge with the children as well as the adults clearly and kept all interested.

The Carlisle reservation is a really nice metropark. Went for a church picnic, wasn't expecting such a clean and walkable park.
