Wasserman Park is one of Merrimack's best known recreation areas. It has a dog park, a playground , tennis courts, playing fields and miles of trails. Wasserman's 46 acres directly abut the town's 87 acre Wasserman Conservation Area. But most poeple refer to both as Wasserman Park. Wasserman also has a sandy beach, though it's only open to Merrimack residents.
Wasserman has many miles of well maintained trails. One, the Quarry Trail, leads to the nearby Horse Hill Nature Preserve. A 563 acre property that itself hosts about 15 miles of trails. Attempting to do both in one day would be a heroic undetaking. The Gilmore Hill Memorial Forest can also be reached from Wasserman.
Wasserman's trails, especially the singletracks are tight, interesting and fun. Quite a bit of trail work has gone into them and this will be obvious as you explore them.
The best place to park is at the Dog Park parking lot. From there head back towards the Park's entry road, cross it by the Park & Recreation Office, and at the end of the Resident's Parking Lot look for a trail going into the woods. (See the map above on the right.)
You'll enjoy Wasserman Park. The trails will bring you back again and again. Oh! And almost every one of them are just as much fun to ride in both direction. Read more about Wasserman Park
