Orchard Cove Nature imageWhen you enter the Orchard Cove campus, you’ll be surrounded by the woods and wetland bordering Canton Pond. Our 32-acre natural environment includes walking trails and paved paths encircling the campus to enjoy the best of all of New England’s seasons.

Canton is part of the beautiful Neponset River Valley of Massachusetts and is overlooked by the Great Blue Hill, the highest point in eastern Massachusetts. The surrounding Blue Hills reservation has miles of hiking trails, a nature preserve and a weather observatory at the summit.

Canton Pond is home to many native birds—you may spot a pair of swans with their baby cygnets, a flock of mallards paddling about or a red-tailed hawk in the tree canopy.

You’re invited to stroll on our two miles of walking trails and enjoy our outdoor gardens and sitting areas. If you love gardening, you can put your green thumb to use in our community gardens.
