The Dennis Conservation Trust also holds conservation restrictions on three other lovely walkable properties. They are also great for picnicking and birdwatching.
The Trust promoted acquisition of this wonderfully open area that includes a public beach, a stream, rolling terrain and wetlands. The Town of Dennis acquired the parcel with a combination of Land Bank and municipal funds. The Trust donated $75,000 toward this purchase.

Chase Garden Creek at Beach Street
The first success with a Conservation Restriction (CR) was a property on Beach Street and Johnson Lane, alongside Chase Garden Creek in Dennis Village. The Trust negotiated the sale with the landowner, raised $100,000, and worked with the Dennis Land Bank. The 4-acre property is now owned by the Town with the Trust holding a CR in perpetuity to preserve the parcel in its natural state.
