The Hurd Grassland is made up of grassland, brushland, and wooded hedgerows. As one of the entry vistas to Weybridge, it reflects the agricultural and natural landscape that is valued by its residents as highlighted in the Town Plan. The formal conservation of the 55.33 acres of the Grassland reflects Gale Hurd’s love of birds, dedication to the preservation of wildlife corridors, and the enhancement of natural habitats for the purpose of protecting and encouraging native birds, animals, and plant species. The Hurd Grassland habitat and trails welcome everyone, from novice birdwatchers to expert naturalists and those who just want to enjoy the outdoors.
The easement for Hurd Grassland allows for limited public access, so please visit in small groups and be respectful of the neighborhood. Access this Weybridge property by turning down Sheep Farm Road from Route 23 or from Hamilton Road, then enter the Terrace Heights neighborhood. Access the grass footpaths and trails by finding the gravel parking area at the end of Meadow Lane. The property is open to the public from dawn until dusk, for on-foot recreation as well as skiing. Dogs are welcome but we ask you to keep them on a leash to preserve important bird habitat.
