Rock Meadow is public conservation land and comprises 70 acres of meadow, wetlands, streams, and woods. It is a part of the Western Greenway, a corridor of undeveloped green spaces that connects the towns of Belmont, Waltham, and Lexington (see Western Greenway map below). The Massachusetts Division of Fish & Wildlife has designated Rock Meadow an important grassland conservation area. It provides significant habitat for plants and animals that are rapidly disappearing as forests and suburbs encroach upon former farmland.
Rock Meadow offers opportunities for hiking, birding, biking, picnicking, cross-country skiing, and community gardening.
Rock Meadow is located along Mill Street in Belmont, between Trapelo Road on the south and Winter Street on the north. To the east of the meadow is McLean Open Space, and to the south is Beaver Brook North Reservation. Paths begin at the parking lot.
The meadow is not actually designated on maps, but the general area can be found by Googling “Beaver Brook Reservation.” Just north of the reservation is a small residential area, and just north of that is an unmarked area that is Rock Meadow.
