This parcel is unique to Randolph and to much of metropolitan Boston area because it is a undeveloped 22 acre parcel that has a five acre pond, acres of open field, and a rare Atlantic White Cedar Swamp.

 

This master plan strives to preserve the essence of the Powers Farm site, while improving access for the public. The plan provides a framework for the Town to follow as the recommendations are implemented over the coming years. With the success of Powers Farm, we expect additional open spaces will be connected via greenways and trails within the Town and expanding to the expansive Blue Hills Reservation. Funding for the recommendations will come from a variety of sources including local, state and federal funds, grants, and volunteer efforts.
