Greenbergs Headwaters Park

Greenbergs Headwaters Park

(Nature, bird watching, trails)

Belvidere Street
(off of Morgan Street)
Bennington, VT

The 165 acre park officially called the Norman and Selma Greenberg Headwaters Park is located off of Morgan Street and includes a picturesque landscape of woods, wetlands, and water.

It features two miles of paths that access a diversity of habitats ranging from wooded uplands to ponds and beaverdams. The South Stream feeds into the wetland which is rated as a Vermont Class 2 Significant Wetland.

Part of the trail system is on the rail bed of the former Bennington and North Adams railway (service ended in 1928). At one time, the trolley line which belonged to the Bennington and Hoosick Valley Railway west of Bennington, ran to Hoosick Falls, NY, a total of about 30 miles.

There is a second entrance to the park for paddlers, located farther down Morgan Street, just past the turn off to Middle Pownal Road. There is a long boardwalk leading to the canoe/kayak launch that takes you directly into the heart of the beaver ponds and wetlands area.

Enjoy walking, paddling, bird watching, cross country skiing, mountain biking, and all the park has to offer!
