My son went there with his preschool the day my daughter was born, May 24, 1984. She was born 3 months early, so it was a big deal, but a bunch of parents got together and said he should still go. He loved it. We tried to go back on her 3rd birthday but discovered it had closed.

Taking my kids and potential real estate clients to Benson's Park is such a relaxing and perfect experience! If anyone has doubts on moving to Hudson, we walk through this park - and Hudson is sold. :)
My kids especially love to get fed snacks through the monkey bars of the animal cages...they feel wild.
Great job everyone! I look forward to helping as much as I can on the dog park and Benson's as well.

Took my kids today to share my love and memories of Bensons. I was very impressed with how wonderful it looks. We had a lot of fun!

I worked there in 1968 and 69.
We earned $1.20 per hour.

I used to work at Benson's when I was a kid - I remember riding my bike everyday to do the parade - we worked everyday for about an hour we all received $1.50 and got 2 coupons for food items each and got to play in the park the rest of the afternoon - those made my summers!!!

It is nice to know others will at least have a place to make family memories!

I rode my bike today through all the trails and visited all the buildings while I was also Geocaching! Http://www.geocahing.com and this brought back so many great memories from my childhood. Nice to see it again.

My Dad used to talk about working at Benson's when he was a teenager. He was from New York, but would go there for the summers. That is all I know. He was born in 1919, so I'm assuming this was around the mid-1930's to perhaps the early 1940s. Are there any work-related documents or stories from this time period? Or, is there anyone I could contact?

I would love to find a picture or story involving him.

Thanks, Vicki

Bob, you could probably check the archives at the Nashua library for old articles.

Steve.....

Our family went to Bensons Animal Farm in the late thirties and I had a ride on Betsy.There were two benches on her sides held by leather straps and she knelt to let children to get on and off after she gave them a ride.I was thrilled and never forgot that I rode on an elephant.

Sandy,
The dog park at Benson Park will be opened when the enough money is raised to pay off the fencing that was installed.
Check out www.hudsondogpark.com for more Info.

To adopt a section of fence: http://www.hudsondogpark.com/fundraising-2/adopt-a-fence

From the Hudson Dog Park at Benson Park:
Just wanted to clarify the Donation Amounts and Fence Payment information since the Donation Can on the website isn’t currently reflecting the amount money we have received and paid!

The total fence cost is $19,800. So far we have paid $9000 and currently owe $10,800.

We received almost $1700 from the DOG Sled Event on February 26th and with some additional online donations we are planning on making a $2000 payment to Gate City Fence in March so that we will owe $8,800. Paying off the remaining fence balance is one of the main steps in getting those gates open!

Sorry if this caused any confusion, we’re working on getting the online amount to be more accurate, this should be resolved over this weekend.

If you have any questions please contact me: jbarker@hudsondogpark.com
