PARKS & PUBLIC SPACES:
Robinson Farm: Robinson Farm was one of the last commercial farms in existence in Marblehead. In 2005, the remaining 3 acres were sold to the Town of Marblehead to be used as conservation land. The school committee owned an adjacent 8.5 acre plot and the Conservation Commission and School Committee agreed to connect the land and allow the space to be developed with trails and open space for education and use by the community. “Today, the Village School uses the area for environmental education and development while the three-quarter miles of trails serve as a pleasant community pathway. Access is available at the end of Byors Road, the old farm entrance from Ramsdell Road, and the southeastern edge of the Village School playground.” (source: MarbleheadConservancy.org)
