Picnic spots in Boston and beyond
THE BRADLEY ESTATE, 2468B Washington St., Canton. 781-255-1996.
This historic mansion is primarily used for private functions, but the 90 acres of rolling hills and manicured grounds are well-suited for an impromptu picnic, too. “We have a lot of weddings, but people are welcome to come and walk and throw a blanket down anywhere,’’ said the Trustees of Reservations’ Dennis Camp. The estate also has livestock, pastures, even brochures for “quests,’’ educational walks around the property.
