Adventures at Hopedale Parklands


I love visiting Hopedale Parklands in Hopedale, MA in every season. With water views  almost the whole way around the pond, it offers so much to enjoy, on relatively, stroller-friendly trails.

Last weekend was a perfect spring day to venture outside. We went to Hopedale Parklands and had a great time on the trail, while a grandgirl climbed rocks and stayed cheerful for the entire 2.5 mile walk. Afterwards I went home and got a nap!
