Original Post: Cutler Park Reservation (Needham, MA)
One of my favorite spots because of its proximity to Boston and it’s pretty views, Cutler Park was a must-see on my foliage peeping tour.
I would consider the colors at Cutler Park to be moderate which is somewhat surprising since I traveled there the last Sunday of October. I have noticed that, perhaps due to the erratic and dry weather (specifically the lack of rain in the area at the time) and other environmental factors, some of the foliage has been happening later than usual. The lack of rain, which had been the case during October, can cause the leaves to drop before they change color. Plus, it seems like a lot of the places I have photographed have trees that do not change colors, such as pine and other types of evergreen trees.
Although Cutler Park is a large park (600 to 739 acres depending on the web site you trust), In fact, it one of the entrances is in Needham and it traverses many town and city limits until you reach Dedham, MA (some 3 miles each way). I took the loop that circles along Kendrick Pond which is about one mile all around. I have been looking forward to going back to Cutler Park and it was great walking along the trails, although I was hoping to see more colors on the trees.
