Rose Swamp is named after the Rose Family who donated the property in 1977.
One half of the preserve is, you guessed it, a swamp. Most of the property is impassable. There is a high and dry area with oaks and maples on the south portion of the property along Avery Lane.
The swamp is south of the Waterford post office and west of the Waterford Police station. Bring mosquito repellant.
