Franklin Park New Year's Day Hike With The Family, Boston, MA

Trip dates: Monday, January 1, 2018 11:00 AM to 2:00 PM

Franklin Park New Year's Day hike in Jamaica Plain, Roxbury and Dorchester neighborhoods of Boston. Meet 11 am. We do this walk/hike yearly and love the openness and history behind Franklin Park. Welcome to the "country park," the largest park and crowning jewel of Frederick Law Olmsted's achievements in Boston. We generally walk the perimeter in about two hours. It can be chilly and windy, but refreshing after a new year's celebration.

Families can easily negotiate the path with a stroller and youngsters enjoy the historical sites along the way. Be prepared for the weather and a broad open area which may be breezy. Sneakers are fine unless snow or ice is present, in which case YOU WILL NEED APPROPRIATE FOOTWEAR. Bring snacks and water.

Open to all, young and old, small and tall. Please RSVP leader Brian Witkov user369128@aol.com by the 30th December.
