You can’t visit it now. But 57 acres are already added to the Blue Hills.

On July 30th, the Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) purchased 57 acres for $198,000 to add to the Blue Hills Reservation. In a year or so, when construction of a sewer line is complete, you’ll be able to explore a new red maple swamp, open marshland and pine-oak upland. The half mile trail explores wetland ecosystems that are excellent for birders. To reach the property, you’ll need to cross Route 138 from the Ponkapoag Golf Course and walk a few blocks through a residential neighborhood.

Many thanks to DCR for continuing to expand the Reservation and protect our open space!
