Entrance to the Heath Hen Meadow Brook Conservation Land
(12 Acres abutting Mt. Hope Cemetery)
Purchased with a combination of Community Preservation Funds, donations from private citizens and a gift from ACT, this property completes a significant green belt on the Heath Hen Meadow Brook extending from the Dunn Land at the Stow line (see below) through the Whitcomb Land owned by ACT up to this property on Central Street in West Acton. It comprises significant wetlands and a large upland portion behind Mt. Hope Cemetery. With this acquisition, the extensive trails in the area can be extended and give greater access to this most diverse area.
