Urban Park Rangers specialize in interpretation of historic turning points, both natural and man-made, in our city's long history. All programs are historic walking tours unless otherwise noted.

The neighborhood of Bayside was originally inhabited by the Matinecock Indians, a tribe of the Algonquin nation. Matinecock, meaning “hilly country,” described the surrounding landscape.

The Rangers will guide you to historic sites within the park and discuss Native American culture.
