July 22, 2022 – Mary Cummings Park – Massachusetts

Today Gus and I Adventured to Mary Cummings Park in Burlington and Woburn, Massachusetts. Mary Cummings Park is a 200 acre park of the Trustees, formerly a farm and estate.

We had a warm adventure to Mary Cummings Park. I felt guilty leaving Wilma but I knew she would not appreciate a warm day, creating a good opportunity for Gus to practice an independent walk. We parked on Blanchard Road at the main parking lot and off we went. We checked out the red, blue, and yellow trail along with portions of other trails throughout the route. These trails were all short but due to the warm day we took a cool car break about halfway through and took several breaks for Gus to rest and drink some water. My favorite part of this Park was the varying terrain from the woods, fields, boardwalk to the paths through the archway of vines. I also loved the gorgeous wildflowers scattered throughout. Due to the park being Trustees the trails were reasonably marked which I appreciated. I was proud of Gus as he did not seem stressed, which surprised me as he relies on Wilma for comfort…he has matured much since last summer! We saw few other visitors, and no other dogs on our walk today. So glad we could visit Mary Cummings Park today. (Rating: 4).

PS – We made sure to buy Wilma some ice cream on the way home!
