The parcel includes both wetlands and uplands. The wetlands are part of
what is identified on old maps of the area as "Bear Swamp." The
Colman Reservation, which contains
77 acres of conservation land, is also located in this area.
One of the Attleboro Land Trust's goals is to
establish a trail that would connect the Colman Reservation on Steere
Street with the city's Finberg Field on the corner of Bishop Street and
Park Street. This new acquisition, generously given by an anonymous
donor, is a significant step towards that goal.
