About Kents Point Conservation Area
The Town acquired Kent’s Point Conservation Area in 1988 after years of planning to preserve the property. The property was subject to a life estate retained by the seller, Miss Charlotte Kent, who lived to be 100 years old. Her house was removed from the site after her death in 1997. Public access to Kent’s Point Conservation Area from Monument Road is via the unpaved Frost Fish Lane.

This land contains more than a mile of undeveloped shoreline, and fronts on Lonnie’s Pond, Little Pleasant Bay, and Frost Fish Creek. The main trail to the former Kent house site goes up the center of the property leading to a handicapped-accessible boardwalk overlooking The River and the northern portion of Pleasant Bay. More than 30 great blue herons have been seen in the Frost Fish cove on a cold winter day.

Orleans center, head east on Main Street towards Nauset Beach and turn right on Monument Road. Turn left after about half a mile onto Frost Fish Lane. Follow signs to Kent’s Point.
