Mary Cummings Park is a 210-acre public green area in Woburn and Burlington, Massachusetts, the former farm and estate donated in 1930 to the City of Boston by Mary Cummings. The condition for the gift was that it should be kept "forever open as a public pleasure ground". The park is used for kids’ day camps such as "Camp Joy", "Kamp for Kidz" and "Camp Wilderness." It is also used as a public garden for school children known as "Woburn Gardens". The park has several miles of trails open to the public. There is a radio-controlled model airplane on one of the open fields, operated by the local club. Every month on the first Saturday, The Friends of Mary Cummings Park organize a guided nature walk open to everyone.
