The City of Newton acquired Varick Hill Conservation Area in 1977. Located in Waban, the 0.19 acre triangular parcel abuts the Cochituate Aqueduct, at the rear of #27 and #47 Varick Hill Road. The City of Newton owns the Cochituate Aqueduct, under which runs a Newton sewer line. The aqueduct and the Varick Hill Conservation Area can be accessed from Varick Road or Quinobequin Road. A trail runs through this small wooded area.
