Borderland State Park

Borderland State Park Professional Review and Guide

"This wet, sandy land is a typical southeastern Massachusetts ecosystem, with the acidic soil beloved by cranberry bogs and cedar swamps. The park’s many ponds were formed by damming its streams, first to spin waterwheels for a nineteenth-century
furnace, and later for fishing, boating, and skating.

The broad carriage paths that encircle Leach Pond and Upper Leach Pond are filled with baby carriages, mountain bikes, horses, and joggers on a beautiful spring day, while the footpaths that twist around the park’s northern half are narrow, rocky, and quiet. This loop is a combination of the two, just scratching the surface of the park’s four-season variety."
