Town residents now have an opportunity to enjoy two new recreational areas in Winchester. The first is the new track at Manchester Field. The second is a walking and hiking trail around the North Reservoir at the Fells Reservation. The track, off Mystic Valley Parkway by the town center, is now open, but town officials are asking that people stay off the field until the fall to give the grass time to become established. The trail, is for walking and hiking; dogs on leashes are also welcome. However, bicycles, horses, and motorized activities are prohibited. Access to the trail is scheduled to continue through November. At that time, the Board of Selectmen will review the usage policy.
