Located at the heart of Park Hill, 165-acre Echodale Farm was once the largest unprotected working farm in Easthampton and vulnerable to residential development. That changed in 2008 when TPL, the City of Easthampton, and Pascommuck Conservation Trust permanently protected Echodale Farm's productive agricultural land, woodlands, wetlands, and stream corridor. Conserving this property prevents fragmentation of an existing corridor of open space, protects valuable farmland and habitat, and maintains the potential for recreational trails that could connect Easthampton with Northampton. Protecting Echodale Farm was a critical next step in the ongoing effort to protect the historic agricultural landscape of Park Hill.
