The former Moseley family estate on the Merrimack River, this park features 19th century gardens and plantings, rolling meadows, towering pines, and one of the largest naturally-occurring stands of mountain laurel in Massachusetts. Most breathtaking are the ornamental trees and masses of azaleas and rhododendrons that bloom in May and June. An exquisite place for walking, biking, horseback riding and informal picnics. Special Use Permits may be obtained for wedding ceremonies and similar programs. Cultural events are a regular feature during the summer. During the winter a portion of the park is off limits due to roosting bald eagles, but the remainder provides excellent cross country skiing and winter walks.

Great hiking, beautiful scenery. Hike through the woods, see the lush greenery around the pond and make your way to the shores of the river.

Nice park. Easy to get to. Paid parking most days. Park was closed when I got there, so I did not pay.
Lots of open trails with great view along the river. Would have loved to hit all of the trails, but just had time for the highlighted route. 1.7 mile loop.
