Great Brook Farm provides expanses of water and wilderness, perfect for enjoying a boat ride, a picnic, or a fun ride through the woods. While adaptable to almost any riding style, Great Brook is primarily a family park that caters to hikers, bikers, nature lovers, and almost anyone who wants to spend a day away from the hustle and bustle of the city. A little over an hour from downtown Boston, Great Brook has a working dairy; barnyard animals like goats, mules, and chickens; as well as a duck pond for scenic picnics or just relaxing. Children and adults can feed the animals with food from a pellet dispenser that's conveniently located next to the animal pen.
