George B. B. Wright Reservation

The Wright Reservation was initially created through the purchase of a 31-Acre parcel in 1968. It has since been added to,bringing its total area to 110 Acres. The trail system is not extensive, but the diversity of plant life is significant. A nurseryman, George Benjamin Barrett Wright, who, in addition to local specimens, planted many unusual species of trees and flowering plants on the site, owned the property. Among them are magnolias, wisteria, and other species from different parts of the United States and the world. The site is also bisected by Putnam Brook, which is bridged on one of the trails. Putnam Brook supports some of the wetlands found at the Reservation.


The trailsign is located 1 mile South of Chelmsford Center, at the corner of Acton Road (Rte. 27) and Parker Road.

Parking location: Parker Road, just south of the intersection with Fay Street
