Growing Grandparents Outing

Growing Grandparents and anyone else who is interested, are invited on a walking tour of Cutler Reservation in Needham at 10am on Wednesday, April 24.

The main entrance on Kendrick Street is about a 25-minute drive from United Parish and offers a number of level trails, all well-maintained. Click here for a digital map and downloadable trail maps (of which we’ll plan on having copies).

Cutler Pond is home to large flocks of swans and many other birds and there should be lots of early spring foliage. Mike and Mary McConnell will be leading the hike.

Cutler Park is a 700-acre state park in Needham, Massachusetts that lies between Route 128/I-95 and the Charles River. It contains the largest remaining freshwater marsh on the middle Charles River, with parts of its major trail running directly through the marsh via boardwalks, and thus over 100 species of birds have been sighted there. At the north end, a trail goes around Kendrick Pond (also called Cutler Pond).
