Five Goals of the Rowley Open Space and Recreation Committee

• Preserve and protect the Town’s natural resources.
• Preserve and protect the Town’s water resources.
• Preserve and protect the Town’s scenic quality and rural character.
• Provide diverse recreation opportunities for residents of all ages and abilities.
• Educate residents about the availability, use, and protection of the Town’s open space and recreation resources.

The achievement of these goals will require commitment by a large number of entities including Town boards and commissions, schools, non-profit organizations, and volunteers. The need for cooperation and coordination among entities will be essential to the successful implementation of this plan. Plan implementation must be an ongoing and evolving process with continued public input under the leadership of the Open Space Committee.

Volunteers are needed for trail/property monitoring. To help, please call the Conservation office at 978-948-2330. 

Report any changes to the trails (downed trees, overgrown trails, or general areas in need of maintenance) by listing the date/time and area you visited. 

Help maintain and protect your favorite trails.
