Current Conditions

The National Park Service (NPS) is working servicewide with federal, state, and local public health authorities to closely monitor the COVID-19 pandemic and using a phased approach to increase access on a park-by-park basis. Access to the park is as follows:


  • The grounds, garden, and nature trail at Saugus Iron Works have been and will continue to remain accessible, 7 days a week.
  • On Wednesdays - Sundays, the reconstructed iron works buildings (Forge, Rolling & Slitting Mill, and Blacksmith Shop) may also be open.
  • Beginning August 1, Roving Rangers are available Wednesday - Sunday between 8:30AM and 5:00PM for visitor questions and there may be occasional blacksmithing demonstrations.
  • One restroom is open weekdays (Monday-Friday) from 10:00AM to 3:00PM for single or family group use only.
  • The Museum, Visitor Center, and "Broadhearth" Museum Store.
  • There are no formal Ranger programs and/or tours currently being offered.

While the listed areas are accessible for visitors to enjoy, a return to full operations will continue to be phased, and services may be limited. When recreating, please follow local area health orders Massachusetts Department of Public Health, practice Leave No Trace principles, and avoid crowding and high-risk outdoor activities.

The CDC has offered guidance to help people recreating in parks and open spaces prevent the spread of infectious diseases. We will continue to monitor all park functions to ensure that visitors adhere to CDC guidance for mitigating risks associated with the transmission of COVID-19 and take any additional steps necessary to protect public health.
