Pelham's public lands are treasures that
belong to each of us in the community. All of these
open spaces are there for your enjoyment. Pelham's
public lands are under the jurisdiction of the Board of
Selectmen with oversight by the Park and Recreation
Department or the Conservation Commission or both.
Many of these lands are large enough for walkers to lose
sight of houses, roads, and the sounds of civilization.
You do not need to leave town to be deep in the forest.
These public properties are ideal for
walking, hiking, bird watching, geo-caching, cross country
skiing, foliage viewing, and the like. Why travel for
miles when you can use these lands right here in Pelham?
Wherever you live in town, there are public lands no more
than ten minutes drive.
As the with any public space, there are
some rules that help to preserve the lands in best condition
for all. Wheeled vehicles are permitted ONLY in
designated parking areas. There are no legal OHRV
trails in these areas. Snowmobile access is allowed on
marked trails. Camp fires and cooking
fires are not permitted due to the potential danger and
damage of the fire.
Hunting is permitted in some areas. Check the
descriptions on the park pages for specifics on each given
