Payson Park

This 48 acre park sits along the shores of Back Cove and Fall Brook and is home to baseball and softball fields, playground, basketball and tennis courts, the Longfellow Arboretum, and a community garden. In the summer months, it is home to dozens of walk-a-thons and running races that take place along Back Cove. In the winter months, it transforms into a winter recreation  paradise with a skating pond, sledding hills and a ski and snowboard terrain park.
