In May of 1999, the Bedford Land Trust and the Town successfully saved approximately 28 acres of beautiful land just outside Bedford's historic center, the Benedictine Land.
Although the Land Trust turned the property which had belonged to the Benedictine Sisters over to the Town, the conservation easement on that land will ensure that the open space will remain protected and available for passive recreation forever.
Benedictine Park is a popular place year round, for good reason: it's perfect for summer picnicking, winter sledding, and just relaxing, taking in the views.
