About Hall’s Pond Sanctuary

Hall’s Pond is one of Brookline’s three wildlife sanctuaries. It is owned by the Town and managed by the Brookline Conservation Commission. Brookline sanctuaries have been set aside to maintain habitats for wildlife and to protect the Town’s groundwater resources. People also need our wildlife sanctuaries, whether for studying nature or for quiet moments in a natural setting.

Sanctuaries are different from parks. They protect ecosystems— tangled networks of living things which depend on each other— that cannot survive the mowing, raking and planting that are needed in parks. Nor can they tolerate the disruptions caused by intensive recreational use.
