  • For people that dont live in Cambridge and need to park, buy a $0.79 cent bottle of water at Whole Foods and use their parking lot. Take that parking stingy Cambridgians!
  • Absolutely beautiful walk around a quiet lake, especially at sunset!
  • Great place to run especially on hot summer days. There're 2 water fountains and plenty of shade. The only downside is that the dogs can be very "excited" sometimes.
  • today is great for a walk. the flowers are blooming enough for aromatherapy along the way. the mud is drying, so you can walk on the dirt again.
