Bird Park continues to impress me with it's beauty. There's plenty of trails to walk, several benches throughout the park, and a nice amount of shade to stay out of the sunlight. They put on concerts and movie nights sometimes too.

I have yet to find as beautiful a spot as Bird Park. Every season of the year it is beautiful. Wander the trails, sit and enjoy and commune with nature right in suburban Walpole
