こんなに近くに大自然
2021年10月
自宅からちょっと足を延ばしてコンコードに来ると、別世界のような自然が開けていました。心に染み入る風景が続きます。1~2時間あれば湖(池?)の周囲を回るDYKE Trailの半分を制覇して元に戻ってこれるので、時間が取れたらまた来ようと思います。双眼鏡があると、楽しさ倍増です。

ちょいと駐車場への入り口が分かりにくいです。Monsen Roadの端っこに、木の塀に挟まれて、入り口があります。細い1本の道路を、対向車が来ないことを祈りながら入っていくと駐車場です。4ドル。オーナーシステムで、箱に各自入れます。
すぐ横に、物見櫓という表現がぴったりの展望台。双眼鏡が役立ちます!

あとは、いろいろと表情を変える湖の風景を堪能しながらのハイクが続きます。ボードワークが至るところにあり、この自然を大事にしつつ楽しもうとする人たちの熱意を感じます。鳥はもちろん、ビーバーの巣もあり、いろんな生き物がのびのびと(私にはそう見えました、でも実際はきっと厳しい生存競争なのでしょうね。)暮らしています。

雨の翌日に行ったのと、今年は多雨の年だったので、トレイルが水びたしになっているところが目に付きました。長靴を履いて行って、よかったです。また、だだっ広いせいか、意外と風も強かったです。
トレイルの1部は、ミニッツマンのバイクパスにもなっているようです。その辺りは赤や黄に色づいた、高い木立に囲まれ、深まっていく秋を感じながらの散策ができました。

こんなに近くに手つかずに近い自然があるのは、アメリカの醍醐味では、と思います。

Peaceful natural escape surrounded by suburban estates.
2021年6月
We visited here this warm morning to walk the trails. At the observation deck of the huge freshwater wetland, we were shocked to learn that this watershed became a Superfund site in 1983. The upstream Nyanza Color and Chemical Co. discharged effluents from 1917-1978. You wouldn't know it today, as the area is so pristine with birds, squirrels and chipmunks among the mixed hardwoods and tall pines. Loved the boardwalks.

Wetland nature retreat
2020年3月
We frequently come to Great Meadows in Concord for a nature walk and to take pictures. There is a nice trail around large portion of the pond, which is covered with marshes and blooming lotuses in the summer and is rich with wetland birds, butterflies, beavers, muskrats and waterfowl. There are also 2 shorter trails through the woods (Edge Trail and Timber Trail). Central path leads from parking lot on Monsen Road to Concord River and bypasses a small observation deck. Several benches are dispersed along the paths. Trails are easy, flat, frequently wet if you visit after rains.
This place has many local visitors, people with dogs and families with children come here often. Photographers and birdwatchers love it also.
A cute attraction for kids would be the tower located at the parking lot which allows to view the area from elevation, we actually saw a beaver swimming in the marshes from that tower.
Parking is free but space is limited, there are clean well maintained restrooms but not open during winter and early spring although we found a port-a-potty instead, well equipped with hand sanitizer. Alternative parking can be found along Monsen Rd itself.
Highly recommended!

Beautiful Wetlands!
2019年11月
This is a really vast wetland, well worth visiting. We visited it in the fall, well past the peak of the foliage season. But it was still very nice to look out over the marsh, and observe the wildlife. There's an easy trail which circles the lower impoundment, which is a nice way of viewing part of the refuge. There's also a tower near the entrance off Monsen Road, with a small telescope (free to use) for observing the wildlife. We could see that there are many American Lotus plants scattered across the marsh: it must be really nice when they are in bloom! Will definitely return here in the spring.

A stunning, natural retreat, hidden right of RT. 26, Who knew?
2019年8月
I had been driving right by the entrance on Monsen Rd for over 20 years and had no idea what was right off of RT 62. After driving down a skinny, one way road to the parking area, I was stunned when we got out. There was a huge viewing tower you could ascend with a binocular set at the top. We chose to walk out around the Lotus Pond. I was not aware that Concord had the right conditions to grow Lotus Flowers and I mean hundreds and thousands of Lotus Flowers. As you would expect, every type of wildlife and bird species were among the beautiful setting. I can understand why this place is so popular for so many. This place is wonderful and peaceful, where you can truly feel as one with nature. Right off the heart of the Center in Concord, MA.

Great stop
2019年6月
We were bike riding on the Reformatory Trail which runs past the refuge. Bikes are not allowed on the refuge trails but there are places to lock them up and walk the trails. There is an observation tower which gives you a good perspective of the whole area.

If you love nature, come to this lovely place in Concord, MA. We come here very often and enjoy the sound of birds and frogs; you can see Canadian Geese, Blue Heron and more.

Always a great venue for a walk.

This is an excellent place to take that afternoon (or evening) walk. It makes you feel as if you are in the country, yet only minutes from central Concord.

my favorite place for birding - or just walking
2017年7月 • 夫妻情侣
Love this place. There is a nice flat dike to walk on between the 2 ponds. It ends at the Concord river. But you can continue to walk around the pond on your right, through some more wooded areas, and end up back at the parking lot (maybe a mile around). The trail to the left ends at some private property. Or just turn around and meander back, seeing the same sights from a different perspective. The walking is so easy and the place is a delight. There are a few benches to sit and just relax there's often someone there with a scope who will likely be glad to share their knowledge and let you look thru their scope at whatever they're watching. Great spot for a family walk. Early morning or late afternoon are probably best for bird variety. But anytime is fine for a walk.
