About Creek Farm

Creek Farm is a 35 acre forest reservation just a short drive from the center of Portsmouth. Once part of the 18th-century farm of royal Governor Benning Wentworth, this coastal hideaway borders the shoreline of tidal Sagamore Creek. The short trail around the property follows the shoreline past a canoe/kayak launch and a man-made tidal pool. Learn more about the coastal forest habitat at Creek Farm in this blog post: Living on the Edge. We hope you'll join us along with local organizations as we gather and celebrate the natural beauty of this coastal hideaway.
