Curzon Mill Rd., Newburyport
The former Moseley family estate on the Merrimack
River, this park features 19th century gardens and plantings,
rolling meadows, towering pines, and one of the largest naturally-occurring
stands of mountain laurel in Massachusetts. Most breathtaking are
the ornamental trees and masses of azaleas and rhododendrons that
bloom in May and June. An exquisite place for walking, biking, horseback riding and
informal picnics. Special Use Permits may be obtained for wedding ceremonies and similar programs.
Cultural events are a regular feature during the
summer. During the winter a portion of the park is off limits due
to roosting bald eagles, but the remainder provides excellent cross
country skiing and winter walks.
The Parking Fee at Maudslay State Park is $2.00. Annual Passes are available for purchase.
