Come explore with us, enjoy the fresh air, build our brains and exercise our bodies. Put your sneakers on, bring a drink and sunscreen.

Fall StoryWalk®
It’s Fall by Linda Glaser
Saturday, Oct. 7 – Sunday, October 22  

The self-guided walk will begin at Greenwood Park, in Stoneham (across from the Stone Zoo), and will continue along the Crystal Springs Trail in an easy, 1/3-mile loop from dawn to dusk. What a great way to combine literature, exercise, and family fun! Be sure to sign in at the Kiosk near the parking lot. “It’s Fall!” by Linda Glaser brings out all the colors and beauty of the fall season. Skip and swoosh through the leaves, as red, orange, yellow, gold and brown leaves fall down around us. A marvelous way to experience the colors and textures of fall, explore the wonders of autumn, including the animal life, plant life, and the weather of the season!

This is brought to you through a collaboration of the North Suburban Child and Family Resource Network, Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation, Medford Family Network, Malden CFCE, The Friends of the Fells, and Mass in Motion.

The StoryWalk® Project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT and developed in collaboration with the Vermont Bicycle & Pedestrian Coalition and the Kellogg Hubbard Library.
