About Leatherbee Woods

Leatherbee Woods Urban Wild includes a parcel of Red Maple swamp adjacent to and contiguous with the swamps of MA DCR’s Hancock Woods Reservation and Brookline’s Hoar Wildlife Sanctuary. Visitors may access the property from a fire road maintained at the boundary line of Boston and Brookline.

Leatherbee Woods Urban Wild is maintained for permanent public benefit by The Trustees. The site is used for passive recreation, including walking, bird watching, and botanizing. This wild is especially nice in late July when the perfume of Summersweet fills the air; just watch out for the mosquitos that also fill the air.

Leatherbee Woods is accessible from Broadlawn Park Apartments, Hancock Woods Reservation, and the Hoar Wildlife Sanctuary.
