Adams Farm is a well known area in my town just south of Boston MA where families, kids and (leashed) dogs can run, play, hike, cross country ski and explore. It’s full of wide open fields and well laid out paths through beautiful woods.
Here’s an overview from the Adams Farm website:
“The Adams Farm property includes approximately 365 acres of town-owned land, additional acreage held in adjacent land conservation trusts, and land owned by the New England Forestry Foundation and the Norfolk County Agricultural School, for a total of over 700 acres open to the public for low-impact recreation”
There is a butterfly garden with a special section along the back fence devoted to milkweed to provide a habitat for monarch butterflies. Although I was there in March 2016 .. so everything was kind of brown
But soon the grass will sprout and the birds will be singing and the butterflies will be .. doing what they do.
If you want a peaceful place – this is it.
The paths into the woods are clearly marked and so peaceful
