62-acre Borden’s Pond is within walking distance of the village of Chatham, and contains 1.6 miles of trails. Though it’s close to the village, Borden’s Pond is home to a diverse wildlife and forest composition,sloping streamside trails (click here for a map), and wetland and Catskill Mountain views.
In 1997, a group of citizens united to form Borden’s Park Preserve to protect this undeveloped parcel. Through community fundraising and two major grants, the initial 52-acre parcel was purchased in 1998. In 2005, Borden’s Park Preserve transferred the property to the Columbia Land Conservancy.
