Consisting of approximately 8.5 acres, the Conservation area is near Rockaway Road in the Clifton section of Marblehead. Entrances are on Marion Road, Marion Road Extension, Warren Road and the railroad right of way. The pond occupies about one-half of the area and is a rich wildlife refuge for waterfowl, particularly during migration periods. In the winter the frozen pond is used by ice skaters. The pond and its surrounding areas support a wide variety of plants and animal life including water lilies, large turtles, muskrat and many swamp-dwelling bushes and trees. Vistas of the pond can be enjoyed from two newly-constructed viewing areas. One is about mid-way between Marion Road and Marion Road Extension at a small granite wall. The other is at the end of a boardwalk connecting the railroad right of way to the pond. There is an extensive trail network available.
