Upcoming Events

Whether you’d like to go on a night hike, get into trail running, meditate by the pond, learn to paint, or take a canoe out at sunset, you’re sure to find something to do at Hale. Safety protocols remain in place, and we hope you’ll join us at one (or more) of these upcoming events.

Earth Day Cleanup (April 17–25, Various Times)
We’re partnering with Westwood Community Trails to steward land and trails throughout our community! Pick a location, date, and time. Then gather family members, friends, and neighbors and help maintain natural sites throughout Westwood. Sign up here.
Patriots' Day Boot Camp (April 18, 9:30 AM)
Open to all fitness levels, this boot camp (sponsored by the Hale Young Professionals Council) is an opportunity to exercise with friends new and old. Led by YPC VP and certified CrossFit® instructor Stephen Murphy, the session is free but donations are encouraged. Please RSVP.
Spring Service Day (May 15 from 9 AM–12 PM and 1 PM–4 PM)
Join us for a morning or afternoon of volunteer work as we prepare Hale for the warmer months ahead. No tools or special skills are needed, but please wear closed-toe shoes and remember a water bottle and snack. Volunteer coordinators will provide equipment, training, and supervision. Please note that volunteers must be 18 years of age or older. In order to participate, a signed release of liability will be required for each participant; these will be distributed and collected prior to the start of project work. Please arrive 15 minutes before your volunteer time to allow time for parking and check-in. Project work will end promptly at respective end times. Register here.

Westwood Community Trails

Financed by Westwood’s Department of Public Works and its Recreation Department, guided by its Pedestrian and Bicycle Safety Committee, and administered by Hale, Westwood Community Trails invites residents to explore the town’s trails and learn more about their importance to the community. Monthly guided hikes (typically on Saturday mornings) vary in distance and topography and explore a number of areas at Hale and beyond. To learn more, email coordinator Rich de Reyna at westwoodcommunitytrails@gmail.com.

WCT’s Next Hike

Westwood Community Trails is exploring again! Join us on our next hike Sat. Apr. 3 at 10 AM at Sen Ki. Hikers will meet on Twin Post Road for a 3-mile hike over mixed terrain, including two overlooks. Kindly remember that dogs are not permitted at Sen Ki. No registration is required; just show up! Please remember to observe COVID-19 Trail Etiquette:

  • Self quarantine: If you don’t feel well, spent time unmasked with people outside of your bubble, or if you recently traveled, please stay home.
  • Keep your distance: Maintain a distance of at least six feet from others.
  • Wear your mask: Even while hiking, wear a mask so others are less likely to pass through your exhaled air. Only remove it when you’re safely distanced from others.
  • Arrive, hike, and leave: We’ll start hiking 5 minutes after the stated meeting time and depart 5 minutes after the hike is over.

Live at Hale
