Join Park Dept. Program Manger Paul (Doc) Doherty and Sally Owen for a quiet stroll through Merrymount Park. The moon will be full as we wander woodland paths, past salt marshes to the boat pavilion at Black's Creek. Dress warmly and BRING A FLASHLIGHT! There may be roots and rocks on the trails which will be hilly in places so you might want to bring a walking stick. Meet in the parking lot at Adams Walk off Merrymount Parkway (Rt. 3A) near the intersection of Hancock Street (across the street from Veterans Memorial Stadium).
