The Crane Swamp Conservation Area spans more than 2,225 acres of open space that straddle the borders of Northborough, Westborough, Southborough, and Marlborough, making this site one of the most significant areas of open space in the Sudbury, Assabet, and Concord River watershed. The centerpiece of the conservation area is a 400-acre red maple swamp surrounded by a complex of open fields, wet meadows, ponds, pine plantations, and oak-pine forests, with Cedar Hill to the west and Walnut Hill to the northeast.
