Fall Family Fun | Wellesley’s Parks and Trails

With the beginning of Fall in full swing, parents alike are now placed with the task of finding new fun outdoorsy family activities. Since we can’t splash around in the pool or head to the beach for a weekend, it’s time for a new set of seasonal activities. To help us all get a little un-stuck, I’ve done some research in the department and with the help of some local resources, I’ve organized a list of parks and trails, along with some local apple picking locations, and nearby pumpkin patches. I hope you find this list to be both useful and comprehensive. Please feel free to write in with any additions or amendments to my suggestions below.

I’d love to hear some further suggestions from you on keeping the kids active and entertained during the Fall. Together, I’m certain we can keep our families occupied until we start to see some snow falling!
