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:

Swamp Maple

Also known as Red Maple, this is one of the soft maples, and is abundant around the upper freshwater pond. Swamp Maples are on of the earliest trees to bloom in the park, and provide beautiful colors for several months out of the year (flowers, then seeds, and the leaves in the fall). When in bloom (now through February) look for warblers in the tops of these trees.

Bird Of The Week:

Hermit Thrush
These medium sized song birds can bee seen all over the park right now,  They tend to scamper over the ground, and fly low to the ground when found in the woods.

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!)?

It's always cool seeing dolphins at Roxbury Park, but what about when three pair come into the cove right next to the cottage to feed . . . and  a Bald Eagle flies in to check things out.  Now don't expect to see this on every visit, but you never know what you're going to see at Roxbury Park!
