Hill's Hill is one of a handful of wooded areas remaining in Arlington. The six acre tract is wooded with a small, hill-top meadow. Blueberry bushes adorn the hillside and native trees are gaining ground around the meadow. This natural habitat is a home to a variety of plants and animals - including hawks and an barred owl, pictured.
To visit, head to 422 Summer Street Arlington MA , parking in the Burns Arena lot. At the east end of the lot, pass a playground, then a soccer field. At the far end of the soccer field you'll find a path up the hill to the meadow and woods. You can find the location on Google maps at https://goo.gl/maps/itzsvRzYH5Shwiws

A warming climate and species decline make our limited wild areas ever more precious. Trees at Hill's Hill provide shade - cooling nearby hot spots - and a space for animals to thrive in a suburban setting.
Neighborhoods benefit from woods! We learned in the COVID epidemic, that nature restores our spirits...a stroll through even a small patch of woods is beneficial.
Hill's Hill is a great place for Arlington's school kids to learn about invasive species, shepherd habitat recovery, and help maintain eco-friendly trails.
