Two New Properties Preserved
The township recently acquired a 7.86-acre piece of land at the north end of Hollow Road, and straddling Rock Brook, Montgomery’s cleanest stream. Once occupied by two homes which are now demolished, the land has been vacant for some time and the forest has grown back. Long ago Rock Brook was used for water power and the remains of a dam can be seen in the stream as a picturesque little waterfall. Montgomery Friends of Open Space hopes to see a driveway with a few parking places for visitors and hikers, and a picnic table or park bench near the stream. A pathway may be constructed through this property and could someday become a link in a trail along the Rock Brook from the northern township boundary and extending south and east toward Skillman Park. Montgomery Friends of Open Space contributed a grant of approximately $100k from Green Acres toward the purchase of this property.
We closed on a second property at the end of June. More information on this open space to come.
