6 Acres Completing the Preservation of Great Hill

Great Hill is an oasis of open space and trails in the heart of Acton.  Its magnificent open field and pond with surrounding woods and trails is an unbroken piece of rural splendor in the middle of historic South Acton.  The acquisition of this key parcel completes the preservation of  a critical portion of woods ringing Great Hill field.  This property (to the right of the field as you enter from the fire station parking lot) already has a well-worn trail completing the woods circuit, and contains a diverse mix of upland trees, stone walls, and elevations.  It leads directly to the Gaebel Land, which was an earlier preservation project for ACT.   This parcel was purchased with a combination of Community Preservation funds, and donations to ACT’s “Campaign for Great Hill”.
