A JOINT PROJECT OF HOPKINTON'S CONSERVATION COMMISSION AND OPEN SPACE COMMITTEE

Rice-Overview

The Rice property, with 200 acres and 1475 feet of frontage on the Contoocook River, was purchased by the town with money from the Open Space Bond.

This large parcel, with its extensive river frontage, provides good habitat for a variety of wildlife. A local farmer maintains the large field near the river. The town has conveyed a conservation easement on the property to Five Rivers Conservation Trust.

Parking and trails have not been developed on this parcel.
