We go there on occasion with our dog. It is beautiful to walk around in. I wish dog owners would keep their dogs on a leash. In the Summer get there early.

The visit to the Cochituate State Park was nice as the weather was gorgeous with clear blue skies. You can park inside the park and rent a boat and go around. Kids loved it.
