The Merrimack Parks and Recreation Department and members of the Grater Woods Subcommittee (of the Conservation Commission) are hosting a family hike at Grater Woods this Saturday, May 14th at 9am. Click here for more details.
Spring is here. Watch for ticks, please clean up after your animal, and try to avoid wet areas so the turtles, frogs, salamanders, and other animals can recover from winter and start their families.
If you hear shooting out near Grater Woods, please call Merrimack Police Dispatch at 424-3774. The Commission does not allow target shooting on its properties and we are trying to stop this unsafe behavior as it interferes with the people using the trails. The Commission recently purchased 120 acres abutting Grater Woods and we are having a problem on these new parcels. We also cleaned up and posted this problem area. Note that we do allow legal hunting on many of our properties see their individual webpages for more details or send us an email.

Thanks! You will feel rewarded.
