NRT Acquires 17 acres along the WWII Veterans’ Memorial Trail

The parcel has nearly a mile of  trails in good condition. A portion of the trails goes along Back Bay Brook and circumvents a wetland area.

NRT president Lou Andrews says, “The property is in a great location. It will give the NRT a positive exposure to the many rails-to-trails users. Once you enter the property you think you were in Maine or New Hampshire.

“To me a lush carpet of pine needles or spongy grass is more welcome than the most luxurious Persian rug.”
