The Sudbury Valley Trustees, from the Concord, Assabet and Sudbury river basin of Massachusetts, is a regional land trust dedicated to conserving land and protecting wildlife habitat. Lately they have been searching for better access and parking in their (Gowing) swamp and bog, an 8.9-acre acidic wetland complex named after Henry David Thoreau and located in a protected, glaciated hollow adjacent to Ripley.
They are planning to build a new “Playscape” that will include a woodland path connecting to a path leading to the Sudbury Valley Trustee’s entrance to the loop trail at Gowing’s Swamp.
The Concord Children’s Center is one of several onsite early education facilities that use the site. It also very popular with people who visit Gowing’s Swamp and walk along its trails.
Yet another reason, to consider options to create your own green space complete with access to outdoor playground equipment anchored into a natural green setting.
