Tips for Families

Beware of other park visitors who don't leash their dogs. They're supposed to, but the park isn't always staffed and it's impossible to enforce without a staff presence. Take a look at Google Maps before you go to make sure that your GPS is sending you on the most direct route. When I attempted what should have been a relatively straightforward drive last Spring with my mom and then 18 month old daughter, my GPS took us on a long and wild ride all over the countryside for no apparent reason. At least it the long drive was fairly scenic. The same GPS got us back to our starting destination in about a third of the time it took us to get there in the first place. Bizarre!

Tips for Families

When the weather is warm, grab an ice cream cone or two at Sno Top, within easy walking distance. Their specialty is the glacier - soft serve atop a Slushie - which comes in many flavors. Swan Pond shirts and memorabilia is available at the Dazzle store on the same street. There is a Dunkin Donuts nearby and a Bruegger's Bagel shop on Rte 173 within walking distance if you want some coffee. If you're in town overnight and are able to break away for a movie date, try the independent theater on 173 in the center of town for more interesting and cerebral IFC-esque selections than you'll find at the mall (grown-ups only).

Suggestions for nearby family-friendly restaurants

There is a new wood-fired pizza place (Iron Wood) on 173. I haven't tried it yet so I can't vouch for it personally, but it started out as a food cart in the Dazzle parking lot and did well enough to move to a storefront. It might be a nice place to grab lunch or dinner and is within easy walking distance.
