Cochituate Brook Reservation
Welcome to Cochituate Brook Reservation
In 1964 the town acquired this 27 acre property from the Framingham Sportsmen’s Association for conservation purposes.

The property surrounds the beginnings of Cochituate Brook where it comes from a dam on Lake Cochituate to where it crosses Old Connecticut Path. The brook continues on, eventually joining up with the Sudbury River in Saxonville.

Main Trail
The major trail through the Reservation starts at Old Connecticut Path just south of Brownlea Road by the Reservation sign, crosses Cochituate Brook, and connects to the Cochituate State Park trails.

The Cochituate Rail Trail (not yet officially open) crosses Old Connecticut Path nearby and gives a view from the south of the emergent marsh next to the brook.

Other Trails
Other trails start from Reardan Park off of Brownlea Avenue and explore the pine and oak woods in the east section of the Reservation.

Another trail from the end of Delmar Avenue connects to the State Park near the dam on Lake Cochituate. Public parking is available off Brownlea Avenue at Reardan Park.
