MDC Cutler Park

Cutler Park is a property of the Metropolitan District Commission and consists of two main areas accessible, respectively, from Needham and Dedham.

The Needham section of Cutler Park is located on Kendrick Street on the edge of an Industrial/Office Park and consists primarily of a loop path around Kearney Pond. A branch off the pond loop path leads to the banks of the Charles River. A small (~16 cars) parking lot on Kendrick Street serves this portion of the park.
