This from the Natural Resources Commission (NRC):
Walking trails will now link two previously separate areas of Fuller Brook Park near Wellesley High School, providing a safer and more continuous pathway between Smith Street and Paine Street to stroll the town’s historic two-and-a-half-mile linear park.
These new trails were part of the vision of the Wellesley Trails Committee to create walkways away from the roads around the high school track and athletic stadium. Construction of a trail running parallel to the small Smith Street parking lot near the track was completed earlier this summer. This pathway winds past State Street pond and behind the stadium, allowing walkers to view games as they stroll. A friendly reminder to anyone parking in that small lot to please keep your bumpers off the trail so as not to impede walkers.
A second trail, now under construction, will serve as the main walkway to the new stadium, and begins directly across from the main parking lot of the high school. An existing pedestrian footbridge was removed and the stream opened to daylight to allow for a wider, handicapped accessible footbridge. Workers are also trimming branches from trees along the pathway to widen that area.
