Routes 1 and 3 have a Doyle stop along their routes, offering easy access to the Doyle Community Park. These two bus routes begin and end at the two main terminuses of MART, the Intermodal Center near the Fitchburg Commuter Rail Station in downtown Fitchburg (click here for fares and schedule), and Monument Sq. in downtown Leominster. The Doyle Conservation Center is a short walk from the bus stop:

  • Indicate your request to stop at Doyle Community Park & Center on either Route 1 or 3, near the intersection of Merriam and Lindell avenues.
  • You may either walk east through Pierce Meadow on the east side of Merriam Ave and follow a trail to the Doyle Center. This trail is located on the north side of Pierce Meadow and runs behind the Boys and Girls Club.
  • Or walk up Lindell Ave and turn left on to Abbott Ave at the next intersection. Take the first left into the Doyle Center.
