| 41. SWEETENED WATER PRESERVE
Edgartown takes justifiable pride in its scenic West Tisbury Road, which is the occidental entrance into town center. Formerly overgrown and hosting a prominent house, this property was restored to open grassland via the off-premises relocation of the house and a round of mowing by the land bank. As a result, the land now blends into the road’s long corridor of fields and the mowing has exposed the blue disk of the Sweetened Water Pond.
nature study, hiking, picnicking, mountain-biking, horseback-riding, dog-walking (leashing required April 1 - August 31), farming, universal access (easy terrain).
Start at the intersection of Cooke Street and West Tisbury Road. Travel west 0.8 miles on the West Tisbury Road; park on the right at the town’s Jernegan’s Pond and cross the road to visit the property. Univeral access space is located on the south side of the road.
