Celebrate Waltham Historic Month with a guided walk in Massachusetts' first reservation, established in 1893.

Wrap up Waltham Historic Month with a guided walk in the first reservation created by the Metropolitan Parks Commission which is now the Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR). The park was established in 1893, mainly to protect the Waverley Oaks, a stand of 22 massive and ancient white oaks, some estimated to be about 600 years old. We'll start in the more developed south section of the park, which features paved trails, restrooms, picnic tables, ball fields, tennis courts, a spray park and a handicapped-accessible playground. We'll then cross Trapelo to visit the northern section, which boasts two ponds, fields, marshes, and a cascading waterfall. The reservation also includes reminders of its past — the remains of a 19th-century flour mill, the historic Robert Morris Copeland House (ca. 1835) and a monument to the Waverley Oaks.
