Here you can enjoy a 66 acre preserve with a diverse landscape that includes a pond, wetlands, woodlands, a sandy beach that is part of Gray Beach, also called Magnolia Beach, and a spectacular ocean lawn edged with rocky outcroppings.
There are clear trails that lead you to Bungalow Hill, The Ocean Lawn and past Clarke Pond and down to the beach. (more…)
