Mary Cummings Park

Mary Cummings Park

Mary Cummings Parks is an over-two hundred acre public park which was given in trust so that the City of Boston would keep the land "forever open as a public pleasure ground". This little-known park offers rare open meadows, deep forests, extensive wetlands, and a network of trails for public enjoyment. See more park photos.
