waldenclosegrMeet a park interpreter at the Thoreau house replica for a walk to the back of Walden Pond where once the voices of merrymaking from the Amusement Park echoed by the shore. Learn about the boat rentals, dancing, and picnicking by large numbers of “day trippers” who came by train from the city starting in 1868. Be prepared for a moderate 1.5 mile walk.
