Palmer Pond and the surrounding wetlands comprise an almost eighteen-acre wildlife conservation area just beyond the barrier dunes of Phillips beach. This thickly reedy area features a biodiverse growth of cattails and beach plums, of cord grass, and beach rose, with layers of peat that were deposited back when the area was a marsh. Palmer Pond is accessed through the end of Ocean Avenue near Phillips Beach, or from the soft, dimply sands of the beach itself.
