Looking for green space galore? Miles of hiking trails, ponds, playing fields, and a couple of championship golf courses thrown in for good measure?
Well as it turns out, you can find all that, and more, at Devens, the old Army-base-turned corporate park just off Route 2, next door to Harvard, Ayer and Shirley, I discovered in this story I wrote for the Globe West.
Devens may be best known for the prominent role it played as a mustering center for soldiers across the country during various 20th century conflicts, starting with World War I, when it was carved out of farmland by the federal government.
