A Summer Walk with First Church Friends
- Date: Saturday, July 17, 2021
- Time: 11:00am–12:30pm EDT
- Location: Fresh Pond Reservation
Meet Susan Ohman (617-388-9811) at the entrance to Fresh Pond Reservation on Concord Ave. Park in the lot on Alewife Brook Parkway where Trader Joe’s/Circle Furniture is located, at the end near TD Bank. Walk across Wheeler St. at Carewell Urgent Care, then across Concord Ave. at the crosswalk/traffic light in front of Carewell Urgent Care. We will meet at the end of that crosswalk at the entrance to Fresh Pond Reservation.
It’s an easy walk on flat ground, both paved and packed dirt, mostly under trees and shady. We will cover 1 – 2 miles, depending on the wishes of the group. We will walk through Lusitania Meadows, where we can enjoy summer wildflowers and birds, then through the Butterfly Meadow. From there, we may enjoy walking for a way on the main path along Fresh Pond. We can include a loop back to the start if some wish to return to their cars. Another option is to go to Maher Park and Black’s Nook. Some benches are available to rest. All are welcome!
