This is a nice park with swimming, fishing, easy mountain biking, and some climbing. There is a small entrance fee in summer, but it is free the rest of the time.

There are two boulders and a 35' slab behind park HQ and a big boulder on the main park road. They are of excellent quality.

Getting There 

You can approach this from Route 85 north of Hopkinton center (~45' west of Boston) or south from Route 9. It is 2.5 miles either way, the park entrance is signed. The HQ is just south of the main park 1/4 mile.

Climbing Season

If you venture out here, be careful of a very large wasp nest at the base of the slab on a tree branch! As stated, the rock is perfect quality... too bad it's not bigger.
