Detailed Trail Info, History, and Photos from Newton Conservators

Kennard Conservation Area was bequeathed to the City of Newton between 1977-1978 in the will of Mr. Harrison E. Kennard, who loved the varied woods and wetland areas associated with South Meadow Brook. Located in Newton in the area adjacent to Brookline, its 32.28 acres contain marked trails, including those through the woods and wetlands that connect to Brookline's "Lost Pond Reservation" and "Lost Pond Conservation Area. " Access is off of Dudley Road from the paved entrance to the old Kennard Estate (Parks and Recreation land), and from the end of Pond Brook Drive.
