Coolidge Point Reservation

Coolidge Point Reservation is a nature reserve situated on a peninsula that's bordered by Magnolia Beach, Clark Pond and Black Beach in Manchester.

It's unique shape and relatively small area of 66 acres, in addition to it's variety of natural settings, make this a fun and exciting place to visit and explore. Be prepared to manage varied terrain including sandy beach, rocky outcrops, woodland, wetland and an open field that borders the open Atlantic ocean.  The teerain offers up many opportunities to view different type of plants and wildlife in the specific natural habitats.

Green's Hill

Green’s Hill provides a unique perspective on the City of Beverly with its extensive vista across the Bass River to downtown Beverly.  The property also provides habitat to several animal and plant species and offers the neighborhood and all residents of Beverly a wonderful urban oasis.  The City acquired this 12-acre parcel in 2001 with the help of state grant funds.  Green’s Hill Park compliments other open space in Beverly, creating a north-south greenbelt.

Shoe Pond Walkway

The majority of this walkway is on private property owned by the Cummings Center. An easy place to begin the loop is at the McKeown School, located on Balch Street. Visitors may park in this parking lot and take the pathway with the Shoe Pond to the right. This pathway curves around the pond and eventually crosses over a small bridge. Once over the bridge, the visitor must climb a set of stairs, which will bring him to McKay Street. The walkway turns right, keeping the pond to your right.

Colgate Park

This is the only open play area in a dense residential neighborhood.  This is the natural pedestrian route to the high school.  It is also adjacent to a large tract of wooded conservation land.  The area has great natural beauty and wildlife that inhabit the surrounding woods and small pond located in the park..  New playground equipment was installed in 1998; this equipment was purchased and installed with a combination of City and neighborhood contributions.  The pond is not suitable for swimming.  The wooded areas have some informal trails, one of which leads into the Beverly Golf and Te

Bass River Walkway

The Bass River Walkway runs from the commercial property on the corner of Green and Elliott Streets, behind the White Hen Pantry and the Starbucks Café.  The pathway follows the sidewalk along Elliott Street until the official pathway picks up on the McDonald’s property.  The path goes behind the Stop and Shop and the Bass Haven Yacht Club.  The end point is on McPherson Drive.  The majority of the walkway faces the Bass River, which is beautiful during the high tide.  There are benches and places to rest along the majority of the route.  Parts of the path are also shaded.

Bald Hill

Bald Hill is the hub of Centerville.  Major roads leading to the base of the hill bring together social, business and residential areas; it was this geographical and social nexus that gave this Beverly neighborhood its name.  In the late 17th century, Bald Hill had little growth covering its rocky prominence, hence its name.  Today, a mix of pine and hemlock cover the site rendering its name inaccurate.
