Wellesley’s "Emerald Necklace" includes Fuller Brook Park which intersects with both the Guernsey Path and Crosstown Trail, through the North 40 forest along the Cochituate aqueduct, through the Morse’s Pond pine forest valley, across the twin frog ponds, past the Wellesley Conservation Council (WCC) Coveside Bank Sanctuary, along the north side of Morse’s Pond, past the scenic view of the pond at Pine Point forest, past the WCC Pickle Point Sanctuary and Bird Island Sanctuary, and across the Boulder Brook aqueduct gatehouse. Wellesley’s series of parkways, based on those in Boston’s Emerald Necklace, serve to connect various parks and open spaces and provide an alternative to our town’s main thoroughfares.
