Park
“Often referred to as the Jewel of Fitchburg, Coggshall Park brings you to a place to walk, reflect or just enjoy nature. A beautiful lake, rolling hills and rocks to climb on abound. The old stone house can be rented for functions and they often have music from the stone gazebo and sitting area.”

Point of Interest
“Follow the drinking gourd and wade in the water children, all the way to this place. It was a stop on the underground railroad. It provides some evidence of how escaped slaves were hidden on their way out of slavery. I have a great deal of pride knowing, that helping people escape from brutality is part of the history of the region I call home. My grandma used to bring me here as a little girl... To show me these historical truths, so that when I see injustice, I will like the people who once lived in this house, take a stand. And so I do. The lessons here are many... And it poses one of the most important questions each one of us will ever ask ourselves, the question, who do I want to be?”

“Famous local spot to go apple picking in the fall. Always loved the caramel apples despite the fact that they are impossible to eat. Locals shop in the barn gift shop for hand made crafts and desserts. Fun day for kids with live music, hay rides, and face-painting. The Friends of Sholan Farms is a working team dedicated to promoting the importance of local agriculture and stewardship of natural resources. The vision is to establish a working farm and agro-ecological education center, which teaches humane sustainable agriculture.”
