Ravenswood Park offers 600 acres for solitude and quiet contemplation of nature. Whether you prefer to surround yourself with snow-covered hemlocks, experience spring emerging in a burst of color and aroma, or escape the summer’s heat – you’ll find a refuge here. Ten miles of carriage paths and trails that meander through the park offer plenty of room to picnic, bird watch, walk, cross-country ski, and simply appreciate the outdoors. Children love the Ledge Hill Trail – a 2-mile round-trip walk among magical-looking, fern-covered boulders. Visit the Discovery Center before you head out on your adventure and to borrow a Discovery Detective Pack for your outdoor exploration. Ravenswood Park is one of 111 properties in the Commonwealth – including working farms, historic homesteads and gardens, community parks, barrier beaches and mountain vistas – owned and managed by the non-profit organization The Trustees of Reservations.
