Open Space Inventory

The Land Committee's inventory of open space in Waltham.

The Land Committee of the Waltham Land Trust has conducted an inventory of all open space parcels of 4 acres or more in the city. For each parcel, the committee has investigated three characteristics:

  • Size - The size in acres.

  • Value - A number that combines several factors to determine a value for each parcel.

  • Risk - A subjective assessment of the risk that a parcel might be developed.

For more information, see Open Space Evaluation Criteria.
