Den Rock Park is the perfect place for a picnic, hike, or rock climbing session.

Located at Route 114, Lawrence, MA 01843, Den Rock Park offers visitors a chance to escape from their everyday lives and enjoy nature. The preserve includes wooded trails that wind through scenic overlooks as well as granite rock faces perfect for technical climbing or just sitting back with friends under sunny skies on an autumn day.
Den Rock Park is a popular park for locals and visitors alike. The lush green trees provide shade during hot summer days, while the rivers make great spots to fish in addition to being good sources of drinking water.
There are many reasons to visit Den Rock Park. The most notable feature of this park for those who enjoy climbing or just watching others do so from above ground level is its signature – and largest- granite outcropping called “Den rock.” This ancient mountain of rock with numerous fissures and cliffs perfect for technical climbing will make any climber happy campers.
Den Rock Park is the only 120-acre park in an otherwise densely developed and historically industrial city. This attraction is replete with woodlands (for which it was named) that have become a regional destination for rock climbers all over New England. Granite outcroppings make up much of what remains here; they provide granite blocks perfect enough to climb on.
The recent improvements at the park have begun to raise awareness about the park’s recreational offerings among Lawrence residents. Many people who live in this area were unaware that it was part of the municipal parks system because there is no entrance via any major road, and most visitors come from outside sources like school or work trips which can’t really be avoided if you want to access (as many do).
The improvements have also improved the views into this natural wonder from nearby neighborhoods as well. This is great news for visitors to Den Rock Park, who can now enjoy a more accessible and beautiful park.
The Den Rock Park Trail offers a number of activities for visitors, including hiking and biking. It’s also easy to access no matter what time you go. The trail has an average elevation change, so it can be enjoyed by all skill levels as well as dogs too – just make sure not to bring them near any water since they might swim if excited enough from their favorite canine friend(s).
