A parcel of a little more than one acre, this property lies on the west side of Martin’s Pond Brook.
The parcel is along Martin’s Pond Brook near the intersections of Chestnut Hill Road and Shattuck Street with Martin’s Pond Road.
Use is encouraged from dawn to dusk.
The property was purchased by the Webber family from the Campbell Trust as part of their acquisition of Gibbet Hill and Brooks Orchard. The Webbers donated it to the Groton Conservation Trust in 2008.
The property consists of woodlands and wetlands along the outflow to Martin’s Pond. The parcel provides protection to Martins Pond Brook. The parcel is affected by several invasive plant species.
