Nissitissit Meadows Conservation Area

Location: 46 Prescott St., 1/2 mile east of Brookline St.

Nissitissit Meadows is 63 acres of town-owned conservation land boasting rolling agricultural fields, ponds, forested wetlands, floodplain, and Nissitissit River frontage. It's a pleasant 0.75 mile walk around the hay field to the left of the swale, along the long wetlands that protects its southern and western edges, and back to the parking area. A wooded trail adds another 0.5 miles into the woods on the right of the pond. Nissitissit Meadows also abuts Massachusetts Fisheries and Wildlife land and connecting trails. Bird houses in the swale in the center of the meadow and the wetlands around the exterior of the field make Nissitissit Meadows a wonderful spot for watching bluebirds and sparrows.  There are also bobolinks, eastern meadowlanks, and hawks.

From Town Hall take Park St. to Prescott St., follow Prescott across Brookline St., (or follow Brookline St. away from Hollis St. for 1.2 miles and turn right onto Prescott St.) and go for 0.3 miles to the parking lot for Nissitissit Meadows on the left.
