Located behind Lincoln Elementary School, this park has everything a school-age child could want: two playgrounds…More with swings, a jungle gym and a slide. For older children, there's a pristine baseball field and, behind that, a basketball court.
During the school day, Lincoln students have priority on the playground but, after school, feel free to take your children to play at this sizeable park.
You may also use the school parking lot after school hours, but if you visit while school is in session, you are limited to two-hour parking on Pleasant Street. If you decide to bring your dog, please make sure it's on a leash.
Colby Park Lynn Fells Pkwy & Larchmont Rd, Melrose, MA02176
Driving along Lynn Fells Parkway toward the Bellevue Golf Club, you might miss the charming little Colby Park. Even…More though this park is positioned right next to the Lynn Fells Parkway, you'd never know it. A line of hedges cuts this tranquil park off from the noise and excitement on Lynn Fells.
The park is neatly tucked in a corner between Larchmont Road and Lincoln Street, completely cut off from the outside world. With its open space, perfectly placed trees and occasional chirping birds, it's the perfect place to come to relax.
If you want to bring a four-legged companion, make sure it's on a leash. There is limited street parking, but it's well worth the trip.
