This quiet park, tucked away by the Rachel Carson Wildlife Refuge at the end of Tenney Lane, has an unmarked .4 mile path that takes you through a forest, over a boardwalk and small bridge, behind a housing development, and finally to a nice overlook of the marsh. You can also do a .4-mile loop around the playing fields on a flat path.
