Maudslay State Park


PHOTOGRAPH by brad Mintz


Once a sprawling family estate, Maudslay State Park now comprises hundreds of acres of woods, trails, 19th-century gardens, and more natural beauty overlooking the Merrimack River. But it’s not only the spot’s natural and historical charm that recommends it to day-trippers. It’s also home to a lively variety of arts programming, such as Theater in the Open and the Maudslay Summer Concert Series.
