Medway Off Leash Dog Park The Medway Dog Park was an idea conceived by Tim Dumas who, at that time, was 15 years old, a resident of Medway and a dog lover. Tim recognized that because of tough leash laws, dogs in Medway had no place to go to get the exercise they really need. Tim's dream was to build a park where dogs could run free, unleashed, and not be in violation of the Town's leash law. Tim planned to make this a community service project to complete a requirement for him to advance in rank to Eagle Scout. Tim undertook the research and planning all the details for such a facility. After much planning, he sought approvals from the various town boards and received unanimous approval from the Medway Board of Selectmen in the fall of 2001. With support from his family and friends, Tim undertook the laborious task of gathering materials and enlisting volunteers. His father, Gary Dumas, assisted Tim by helping him manage and coordinate this enormous project. They discovered many local businesses, organizations, and citizens in Medway extremely willing to offer their services and financial support for the Medway Dog Park. Tim's plans included the preservation a piece of Medway history by protecting the historical landmark at the park. Permission was granted by the Medway Parks Commissioners and the Medway Board of Selectmen to allow Tim to back fill a stone foundation with sand to prevent further erosion and collapse. The top stone layer of the foundation remains in view. This foundation marks the site of the home of Medway's first settler, Henry Garnsey, circa 1700. The stone foundation is fenced in to further preserve the site. Adjacent is a three sided wooden structure which serves as a message board and an emergency storm shelter from the elements while at the park. Tim also wanted to include a monument to Medway residents. "The Star Spangled Banner" now waves at the intersection of Village and Cottage Streets in a memorial park for noteworthy town residents. Two plaques commemorate those who have served in the fire and police departments. The hard work of this young man has paid off because now, thanks to the hard work of Tim Dumas, the residents of Town of Medway can enjoy the Medway Dog Park along with their dogs. See Details
Purgatory Chasm Just 45 min from downtown Boston! A unique natural landmark, Purgatory Chasm runs for a quarter of a mile between granite walls rising as high as 70 feet. Popular with picnickers and rock-climbers alike, the Chasm is believed to have its origin in the sudden release of dammed-up glacial meltwater near the end of the last Ice Age, approximately 14,000 years ago. Trails lead to a wide variety of rock formations, with such romantic names as The Corn Crib, The Coffin, The Pulpit, Lovers' Leap and Fat Man's Misery. An adventurous playground, equipped with a play structure, swings and a merry-go-round, is now located near the visitor center. Please be aware chasm rocks and slopes are slippery and deceiving. Wear rubber soled shoes or hiking boots. Please stay away from the edges of the chasm. It is not recommended to hike the chasm after or during inclement weather due to extremely slippery rocks. Well behaved dogs are welcome, but must be leashed at all times. "My two dogs loved the area. The were like two gazelles bouncing from one rock to another. There were kids all over to say hi to and get a nice pet from. And we saw tons of other dogs." says Jonathan Cleveland after his first visit to the chasm with his two mutts Bobo and Buddy. "This was our first time here and we will be back, specially since it is only 45 min from Boston. We even finished the day off with a nice picnic overlooking the chasm." See Details
