Wetlands on the Bishop Street parcel

Special Features

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.
