Hyde Brook runs through this woodsy hollow surrounded by back yards. Wildlife include deer, coyotes, wild turkeys, and warblers.

HISTORY:

1970s

Tony and Pam Awtrey purchased their house on Sargent Park and a one-acre lot that fronted on Park Street.

2005 The lot was subdivided, and the Awtreys donated the rear parcel of land to Newton Conservators for conservation, public enjoyment, and nature study.
