Event Details
Nahanton Park is a new map (2016) in Newton. The park is largely forested, with a large field in the center. You may encounter some poison ivy, but it is not typically a problem, and the forest is very open with fast running and good visibility.

Getting there

The nearest public transit is the 52 bus, which drops you off on Winchester St, about a half-mile from the start.

This event is part of the 2017 Boston Park Series
