Description

17.5 acres of meadow, pond and wetland, adjacent to the Oak Bluffs School that serves as an “outdoor laboratory” for pupils as well as for public enjoyment. A trail connects South Circuit Avenue and the school and then continues past the town wellfield into the Trade Wind Fields Preserve — a superb natural experience only minutes from Oak Bluffs center. Also explore the 9.7-acre knob of land projecting into Farm Pond from Beach Road.
