5 Amazing Hudson Parks to Visit this Spring


The clocks have been rolled ahead. The weather is warming. Spring, as they say, has sprung.

That’s a good reason to get outside and enjoy some of the amazing parks in and around Hudson. We’ve got more than people realize. With the weather warming, we thought we’d recommend five of our favorites.

Barlow Farm Park

If you’re a longtime Hudsonite, you remember when this was an actual farm. These days, the 60 acres of Barlow Farm Park at 1965 Barlow Road are home to all the athletic fields one could need. This swath of open space features six soccer fields, four baseball fields, and miles of trails to walk when you’re not busy throwing the ball around. There are also pavilion areas where you can have lunch or even host large gatherings.

Bicentennial Woods

If you prefer exploring Mother Nature rather than tossing around a Frisbee, you might want to check out an often overlooked hidden gem: Bicentennial Woods, at 2302 Victoria Parkway. This patch of heavily-wooded land is one of the last areas of hardwood forest in Hudson, and is often used as a nature study preserve by nearby schools. The trail is very short, only half-a-mile, but it connects with our next park pick, Hudson Springs Park.

Hudson Springs Park

Everyone knows this one, of course, but you can’t make a list of Hudson parks and leave it off. One of the centerpieces of our community, Hudson Springs Park boasts 260 acres of trails, meadows, hedge mazes, play areas, and more. Plus there is a 50-acre lake with good fishing. You can find it at 7095 Stow Road, though we suspect you already know where it is.

Maple Grove Park 

If you want to explore something a little more untamed than Hudson Springs, try Maple Grove, located at 934 Farmham Way. This 100-acre patch of undeveloped land mixes fields, woods, and wetlands and offers a look at the area’s environmental diversity. A trail winds through the park, giving hikers a chance to see all the birds and wildlife that make this their home up close and personal.

Veterans Way Park

We love downtown Hudson, so what better than having a great park nearby? Veterans Way Park is a quick walk from the downtown area, at 55 Veterans Way. The 38 acres of this park pack in open space and trails with a skate park, basketball courts, wetlands to explore, pavilions, playgrounds, and even an amphitheater. If you want to get the family out of the house for an afternoon this spring, Veterans Way is a great choice.
