The open space project, a boardwalk that loops for a third of a mile through the Great Wenham Swamp, is complete with a table and benches on the observation platform for a peaceful respite.
The SwampWalk is finally ready for its grand debut. There is a grand opening ceremony planned for May 18 at 10 a.m. The public is invited to come by to check out the birds, wetlands, beaver dams and other wildlife that inhabit the Great Wenham Swamp.

An Australian Shepherd that has gone lost in Topsfield could possibly be headed south on the Rail Trail or along Route 97 toward Beverly.
A 14-year old Australian Shepherd that has been missing for more than a week was last seen headed south toward Wenham. The dog, named Hogan, went missing from owner Dean Tzortzis’ home on Juniper Lane in Topsfield on Oct. 17. The street is off Route 97, just north of the Wenham town line and along the rail trail. There’s an electric fence at the house and Hogan was outside playing in the back yard, near the rail trail. He wandered south along the rail trail, as he usually does, and Tzortzis yelled to him and though he would return, as usual. But he hasn’t. Tzortzis took to Facebook this week, using the Moynihan Lumber page to get out the word about his lost dog. While Hogan is old, his hearing “is a little off” and he has mild arthritis, …
