When I was growing up there was a wonderful zoo here in NH called
Benson’s Animal Farm in Hudson, NH.
It closed many years ago (30 yrs?) and it has now been refurbished as a wonderful
walking path with many places to sit, bring a picnic and just relax.
The Ape house is still there along with a few other landmarks which
make the park unique and interesting. The paths complete around 3.5 to 4 miles.
The park is alive with joggers, families with strollers and toddlers and even dog walkers. The place has been revitalized by sheer donations and people who volunteer their time to help groom and maintain it. If you haven’t been, it’s worth a visit. (At no charge)
