Pape Reservation.

In 1990, the CCT voted to grant the Town of Cohasset significant funding to help the Water Commission forestall development of an 11-lot subdivision on King Street adjacent to the water treatment plant on Lily Pond. The sale was completed in 1993.

The property provides wildlife habitat and critical watershed protection for Lily Pond, Cohasset's drinking water supply, and connects with the Brass Kettle Conservation Area.

The hiking trail winds around the western edge of Lily Pond and a spur trail connects to the trails at the adjacent TTOR's Whitney-Thayer Woods.
