Whenever I see shoreline cut off from public access due to private ownership, I soothe my feelings of dismay by thinking of the two miles of shoreline within Lowell Holly Reservation. It’s a special place where cool breezes coming off the waters of Wakeby Pond and Mashpee Pond pass over the large stand of massive beech trees that shade this peninsula dividing the two ponds. Small pockets of white, sandy beaches, more than 300 native American holly, and several kinds of rhododendrons are just some of the additional reasons to visit the reservation. Highlights: Peninsula on pond, beech trees, swimming and fishing.
