Booth Pond Property
This is a 40 acre parcel of mixed wetlands, woodland growth and Booth Pond. It is east of the Dowling Village. The current entrance to the property is very rocky and steep.

The property is a great place to see birds and animals of all types. Walkers, hikers and birders are always welcome. The land was purchased in 2014 by the North Smithfield Land Trust and the Town of North Smithfield, using money from the Town of North Smithfield's Open Space Bond and a Grant from the RI DEM.
