Woodsom Farm offers open and rolling meadows, sprawling wetlands, and even stands of birch, beech, and oak. Acting primarily as conservation land for Amesbury’s Powow River watershed, it is fully open to the public. Popular uses are dog walking, sledding, hiking, and various organized events.
Woodsom Farm was purchased by Amesbury in 1989 in order to protect it from being the site of a housing development. Thirty years later in 2019, Woodsom was officially declared a city park.
The beautiful Powow River shapes the farm’s western border. Follow the main trail from the soccer fields parking lot to a perfect swimming hole where dogs and humans can often be found taking a dip. For intrepid kayakers, start at Lake Gardner beach and paddle 3.8 miles up river to this spot for a picnic!
