Monterey Hilltop

Ownership: Boston Conservation Commission 

Neighborhood: Hyde Park 

This site is a very steep slope below the Beechmont Footway, which connects Beech Avenue to Ashville Street, in the Clarendon Hills section of Hyde Park. The slope descends to the backyards of houses on Windham Street. The site is densely wooded with maples, oak, hickory, birch, and cherry. Monterey Hilltop provides residents with a lush wooded area in a built-up area of primarily single-family houses. Furthermore, it provides a nice view to those walking along the Beechmont Footway. The homes abutting the site, along Windham Street, particularly benefit by having the wooded area directly adjacent to their backyards. Given the severity of the slope, acccess through the site is not feasible.
