BOSTON (WBZNewsRadio) - Warm, sunny weather and the three-day weekend drew crowds to parks across the state on Memorial Day. The Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation was forced to close some of the parks as the hit capacity.
DCR announced Ashland State Park, Cochituate State Park, Douglas State Forest, Hopkinton State Park, and Walden Pond State Reservation were all closed, having hit capacity with the holiday crowds.
Ashland State Park and Hopkinton State Park will begin allowing people in later in the day as crowds disperse, the others remain closed for the remainder of the day.
