Though small in size, Back Shore exemplifies the wonderful scenery of Cape Ann with a spectacular view of its magnificent, rocky coastline. It's a perfect place to enjoy the view and savor the salt air.
Save Our Shores Gloucester and a group of concerned citizens created the opportunity for conservation and raised funds in 2016 to acquire the property and protect it from development.
In 2017, Save Our Shores Gloucester transferred the property to Greenbelt.
Greenbelt completed the installation of the granite bench for visitors to enjoy in 2020.
Greenbelt is grateful to several professional and staff photographers whose work is featured prominently within our website.
Thank you Jerry Monkman / ecophotography.com, Lynne Holton, Kindra Clineff, Adrian Scholes and John Raleigh.
