Start Location  

Available Maps:

Mapquest Topozone Google Maps

From Rt 2 in Arlington, go east on Rt 60 (Pleasant St. in Arlington) 0.4 miles. Turn left (west) on Grey St, and take the first left on Jason St. The park is 0.1 miles south on Jason St.
The closest MBTA service is the 67 bus from Alewife Station. Get off on Pleasant St in Arlington at Norfolk St (this is at the first street on the right after the bus has left route 2); walk up Norfolk St to Jason St, turn left and follow Jason St to the park entrance on the right. More frequent service is provided by the 77 bus (from Harvard T station along Mass Ave toward Arlington Heights). Get off at Jason St just after Arlington Center; walk down Jason St around 0.3 miles to the park.
(Need more exercise?)
The park is quite close to the Minuteman Trail - ride there, or run there.
