Did you know?


Roxbury Park  is home to the Least Killifish, the smallest species of fish in North America, and one of the smallest vertebrates in the world.    Read more here.

Plant of the week:

Sea Ox-eye Daisey

This is currently the most common wildlfower in the park. You will find it blooming along the trail all around the big pond, and even out into the tidal marsh. It is a favorite of a wide variety of pollinators so llok for butterflies, and a diverse assortment of bees and wasps.

Bird Of The Week:

Wood Storks

Once listed as an endangered species, in June 2014, they were upgraded to "threatened" . . . which is still very serious.  We are fortunate that Roxbury Park is a place where these magnificent birds love to perch during the day. They can also be seen feeding in the creek near the cottage at low tide. Many people refer to them as the most beautiful ugly bird in the world. They have no feathers on their heads, and are in fact closley related to vultures.

Swamp Thing!

Check out this recording of a strange sounding creature that was heard in the swamp at thesoutheast corner of the park. Turns out that it was nothing more than a "variant call" of a female Wood Duck.


Roxbury Park has a beautiful rustic two bedroom, two bath cottage that can be rented out for the week.    Did you realize that we are located right in the middle of these other well known natural protected areas in the Ace Basin (all eBird Hotspots!)?
