Walking around the pond, through the teahouse or along one the wildlife/nature trails is always pleasant. The trails are well maintained and - in general - are pretty easy walking condition. Picnic areas are well situated and everything is kept clean.

Stanley Park is a beautiful park in Westfield MA. Many Acres of flower gardens, duck ponds, and open fields. They also have a great pavilion that hosts concerts in the summer. Aside from the concerts, it is a beautiful place to just walk around.
