Dunbarton Woods Urban Wild – West Roxbury

Name: Dunbarton Woods Urban Wild – West Roxbury

Ownership: Boston Conservation Commission (transferred from Neighborhood Development)

Neighborhood: West Roxbury

Size: .66 acre (11 parcels plus ½ street right-of-way ) 

Undisturbed upland forest habitat comprised of native hardwood trees, wildflowers, and rock outcroppings. Important less in its size or habitat types, but more in its proximity of other nearby open spaces such as Grove Street Cemetery and Stoney Brook State Reservation. In this sense, the area serves as a wildlife corridor. Access is available via Dunbarton Road. The adjacent Cheriton Grove Corporation and the City entered into a maintenance agreement as part of this land acquisition.
