I walk the root exposed, rutted and rocky trails of Callahan park several times a month. The park is under maintained and seemingly totally unsupervised by Massachusetts Department of Conservation Resources, DCR. I've never seen anybody from DCR in well over 200+ times that I...More

This is a hidden gem. Perfect for an afternoon stroll in any season, An occasional pond, a place to sit, shady paths and never crowded. Walk alone, stroll with a friend or bring a dog to run.

I come here 1-3 times a week after work for runs and mountain bikes in the spring to fall. Great network of trails. Northern half of park is a little more technical, southern end is more flat and rolling and dog friendly.

This park has been overrun by dogs that are not on leashes. Early mornings before 8:30 it's relatively safe to go without a big dog jumping on you. Parts of Callahan in the woods are beautiful and the rest has been ruined by dogs. I...More
