Three Meadows

The Three Meadows parcel, also referred to as the Bridle Lane property, runs along Woodhouse Avenue and Bride Lane, and, on its other sides, backs up to quiet neighbors who seem to appreciate nature. The property contains several varied habitats, meadows, wetlands with a stream running through the central corridor, a cedar stand, some scrub growth, and early successional forest, all of which provide cover, shelter and food to a wide range of amphibians, mammals, butterflies and birds.

One of the major features of the property is a large, beautiful sugar maple. The area around the sugar maple was cleared and benches were installed. This is a wonderful spot for a picnic or sitting and enjoying the surroundings. A .25 mile loop trail starts and ends at the sitting area. One trail head is on the right, and the other is on the left. The trail meanders through the meadow and into a cedar forest. A stream can be seen nearby. A long boardwalk was needed to get through a wet area.
