The Trustees of Reservations - which runs parks, nature preserves and community gardens in the Boston area - announced today that they have re-opened 76 of them, but are asking only people local to them use them, to comply with state social-distancing guidelines.
These are sites that did not experience overcrowding prior to the closures. We ask that you visit just those sites in your community and refrain from traveling to others, in alignment with the Governor's order.
If a parking area is full, please come back at a less busy time.
Other Trustees properties will remain closed until May 4. These are sites where a staff presence is required to prevent overcrowding or where town officials have requested that they stay closed. Gates and parking lots will be closed, and all are asked to respect these closures in order to help slow the spread of this serious virus. Sites with narrow trail systems are also being kept closed.
While agricultural operations continue, all Trustees farms will remain closed to visitors, except for curbside food pick up, to ensure the health and safety of essential agricultural staff and the food grown on these farms.
