Trails and Open Areas

Trails & Open Areas Melrose offers to its residents and visitors a wide array of both active and passive recreational activities. While Melrose is primarily a residential community with over 56% of its land developed for residential purposes, it remains more than a “greenbelt” separating it from other communities. This greenbelt accounts for 26% of the total city land and includes the Middlesex Fells Reservation, Mount Hood Memorial Park and Golf Facility, as well as areas surrounding Swains Pond, Ell Pond, and Towners Pond.
