This is a nice walk around the 155 acre Fresh Pond Reservoir. There is one main path around the pond with options for short side trails. There are three main entrances at Alewife Brook, The Cambridge Water Works and Glacken Field but you need to be a Cambridge resident to park here.

This is my home base. Not easy to find a closed off space in the city. Lots of dogs, birdwatchers, runners, bikes, etc. four seasons of getting off the roads.
Parking is tough for non residents.
