Millennium Park

Last time in my blog, I wrote about how great the location of MSPP is. Since then, spring has sprung, and I have been able to experience some more of the local greatness of West Roxbury. In particular, I am thinking of Millennium Park. During the dreary winter months, it is a natural decision to remain indoors unless it is absolutely necessary to venture outside. However, now that it is warming up, I have joined one of my friends on weekly walks during our break from classes.

Now every Thursday, instead of spending the day cooped up inside studying, we make an effort to take to five minute walk over to Millennium Park. A quick walk up the road from MSPP provides us with a wonderful oasis. We enjoy the fresh (usually sunny and warm) air and being outdoors. Sometimes, people even let us play with their dogs (this is an extra special treat!). Our weekly walk last 20 to 30 minutes before we have to get back for our next class, but these 20 minutes of enjoying the beautiful scenery at Millennium Park has proven to be priceless.

By allowing ourselves to take a break, we have had an easier time remaining focused for the rest of the day- key on Thursdays as we are both at MSPP all day. This 20 minute break (self-care!) is what has made the end of my semester slightly less stressful than last semester, and I am thankful to have an opportunity for self-care so close to MSPP. I am not sure if MSPP purposefully picked their location knowing it was so close to Millennium Park, or if this was a lucky accident, but either way all MSPP students are fortunate to be so close to such a wonderful park!

    good info scott. i will visit

  24. I would have loved to have a park to take a break at. When I was at university. I went to the university of central lancaster in england. An though there was plenty of nice buildings and trees dotted around. There was not anywhere you could really walk near the campus as it was in the centre miles away from anywhere. Though I am jealous of the fact you get to play with dogs. They are by far my favorite animal.

    But overall your post has a lot of useful information. An definatly doesn’t only apply to university life. but to all work that taking a nice short 20 minute walk. Will help reduce stress, will help increase productivity and will help you be successful in whatever you do.

  25. Thanks for the post. I haven’t been in Millennium Park but I’m looking forward to do so. This is the best thing you can have while studying a place where you can lay down for a minutes and forget about all worries.

  26. I just went on this park with my kids and dog. This is truly awesome and not very expensive place to spend day offs. Thanks for the info about this.

  29. Do you wish you knew how to train your dog? This is what this website is all about.
    You will find a lot of free information about many common dog training problems such
    as barking, biting, jumping on people, pulling on the leash, being aggressive towards
    other dogs, and much, much more.

  30. Well said, thank you. This has discovered a piece of this which I had not contemplated until this and I appreciate your fresh perspective!

Sometimes, places like this unwinds us after a long stressful weekdays. This will be a nice place to unwind, chill, and relax. I’ll go give it a visit, and hopefully post photos somewhere here. Can’t wait to walk my dog down here at the same time. Again, nice idea! Appreciate it.
