My favorite part of the day during the summer is after a long hot day when the sun slowly starts to set, temperatures start to go down and there’s gentle coolness in the air.
As the sun sets later this time of year, there’s plenty of after dinnertime activities to do in the area. One of my favorites is walking.
Here’s a list of some of my favorite local walking trails (and some that I hope to try!)
- Ghiloni Park in Marlborough – what’s great about this place is that there’s amble things to do. There’s soccer fields, a softball field, a playground, exercise area, skate park, and a shaded walking trail. You can even bring your dog on the trail, too! (I may have scraped my knee a few times roller blading down the trail as a kid)
- Of course, there’s always walking trails at Hopkinton State Park – grab a park pass at the library and you can make a whole day out of it that includes swimming and walking.
- And if you don’t want to travel outside Southborough’s borders, there’s the Breakneck Hill Conservation Land perfect for hiking, bird watching, and cow admiring. (watch out for the poison ivy)
- Of the trails in Soutborough, I haven’t had the chance to try yet are: Sudbury Reservoir Trail, Bay Path Trail and Chestnut Hill Farm. (If you’ve tried these place, I’d love to hear what you think of them)
Take advantage of the parks in area – you won’t have to break the bank for a simple day trip.
