Dorothy Connors Bell/Grassy Pond
The trails at the Dorothy Connors Bell Conservation Area follow rolling terrain just above Grassy Pond (town water supply) and neighboring Clay Pond. Songbirds abound and wintergreen covers the forest floor. If you take the path from the parking area to the right (closest to the power lines) it will descend down a small hill and you can see Clay Pond first through the trees, where skaters enjoyed winter games in years gone by, before you come to a bench and kiosk with QR codes to hear recordings of family members and those on town boards who helped conserve this beautiful rolling landscape, and water resources for all to enjoy. Wildflowers and signs of former agricultural land use may also be found. A memorial perennial garden by the circle drive, along a small grove of black cherry trees provides cheerful color in the spring.
