The Four Seasons of Center School
In the Spring we hear the sounds of birds announcing the end of winter as they forage for insects and seeds and build nests. Among them are cardinals, woodpeckers, bluebirds, and robins. Salamanders have been spotted emerging from decaying logs. Even an occasional turtle has been seen near the stream on the property.
In the Summer, young children and their friends enjoy having a picnic under the shade of the beautiful mature trees of the pine grove. The play at the safe, age appropriate playground.
In the Fall, the varieties of trees display their beautiful colors. Activities on the Town Common add to the enjoyment of the adjacent open, green space at Center School. A game of pickup soccer or an archery lesson sponsored by Parks and Rec take place here.
In the Winter, snow brings the joy of trying to identify the many different animal tracks. Cross country skiers practice on the challenging trails.
The open, green space behind Center School is a downtown treasure and it must be preserved for future generations. The citizens of Hopkinton own this land! We should not give it to developers for any price or promise.
