I love this little place. It is only a small park, but is a great place for a quick get away. The trails are well marked and maintained. There is also a lovely potter field cemetery in a trail north of the park.

Very nice place to go for a hike or walk the gardens. Trails are an easy walk and the park is dog friendly. Put on bug spray.

Not so happy about all the dogs pooping all over the place so watch your step. Gardens are lovely in spring, summer and fall and the sunday concerts on the lawn are worth attending. Wintertime not so much. They really need to do something about...More

Always looking for great places to walk the dog! This place is a smaller park with great trails and even a nice wooden path through the marsh. My dog loves this place so we go almost everyday. They also have poop bags there for you....More

The Bartlett is a treasure in many ways. The walking trails are well laid out and clearly marked. The perennial beds and annuals are lovely. I am always struck by the wide variety of flowering plants and their juxtaposition with each other. There are gorgeous...More
