About the 5K Course and the Festival
The 5K course (and the festival) begins and ends in the "Shattuck Picnic Grove" of Franklin Park, next to the entrance to the Lemuel Shattuck Hospital parking lot where you'll park. The course loops around Scarborough Pond, then around the William Devine Golf Course, and finishes back in the picnic table area.
