Ice Skating (Outdoor)
Salem Common began as the town's common pasture land, to which each Salem citizen could bring a cow to graze.
The Common is now Salem's large, pleasant central park, with the Hawthorne Hotel at its southwest corner.
MA Route 1A passes right along the edge of the Common via the streets named Washington Square North and Washington Square West.
Harold Parker State Forest, which lies in Andover, North Andover, North Reading and Middleton, comprises just over 3,000 acres of Central Hardwood-Hemlock-White Pine type of forest. The forest is twenty miles north of Boston and within one hour's drive of three million people. Recreational opportunities include hiking, mountain biking, fishing, hunting, horseback riding, camping and picnicking.
