Overlooking the Merrimack River in historic Newburyport, MA, Moseley Woods is a 16-acre public park featuring hiking trails, picnic tables, a well-equipped playground and a spacious pavilion that is home to a summer concert series. A haven for nature lovers, dog walkers and children, the park is maintained by the Friends of Moseley Woods, a registered non-profit corporation established by members of the Moseley Woods Commission and the City of Newburyport.
The sanctuary’s diversity of habitats, including meadows and woods, attract numerous birds including pileated woodpeckers, winter wrens, and Louisiana waterthrushes.
This site also serves as our North Shore Conservation Advocacy office, which works with interested citizens and municipal and regional officials to provide greater protection of the region’s wildlife habitats.
Although there are no walking trails, the public is welcome to stop in and learn more about our conservation advocacy efforts on the North Shore.
