Description

This 165 acre preserve is part of the drainage system of the Peconic River and serves as a natural reservoir for our fresh water supply. It allows for hiking that includes sights of the Little Peconic River, various plants, birds, reptiles, and other wildlife creatures. Within the preserve lies Sweezy Pond and Cheney Pond, which is surrounded by a White-Cedar swamp with trees as large as 16″ in diameter. It is a haven of natural, unspoiled beauty on the edge of a rapidly growing urban center.
