Winter Walk into History
January 23 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Westborough – A Winter Walk into History will be held on Sunday, Jan. 23, from 1-3 p.m., at the former Westborough State Hospital, surrounded by beautiful woods as well as interesting history.
This walk put on by the Westborough Community Land Trust begins at the new pavilion on the shore of Lake Chauncy. Here a brief introduction to the fascinating story of Westborough State Hospital will be given, illustrated by historical plaques in the pavilion. Participants will then enjoy the crisp air and winter views on a two-mile walk exploring some of the lesser-known trails in the adjacent Wayne F. MacCallum Wildlife Management Area, on woodland trails with some small hills.
Directions: Take Dr. Solomon Carter Fuller Way [formerly Hospital Road] off Lyman Street in Westborough. Go straight up the hill, past the soccer fields on your left. Then take the very last left turn before the parking lot for the condo building. Where that road meets the lakeshore, park in the lot near the yellow gate. Meet at the pavilion by the parking area.
No reservation needed. Check for weather cancellations before setting out: https://westboroughlandtrust.org/.
