About Little Sippewissett Marsh

Behind Woodneck Beach on Buzzards Bay, the tidal creek that winds through Little Sippewissett Marsh has long been the exploration destination of many a young beachgoer equipped with a net and bucket.

Salt marshes are highly complex ecosystems that support a diverse array of species dependent on these unique land-meets-sea conditions. Little Sippewissett Marsh is home to an abundance of crustaceans, mollusks, microbes, birds and fish that would elsewhere not survive. For the human visitor, Little Sippewissett Marsh is an excellent spot for bird watching, wildlife observation and kayak exploration.

The town owns 26 acres of marsh. Salt Pond Bird Sanctuaries, Inc. owns seven acres.

Access to Little Sippewissett Marsh is by way of Sippewissett Road to Woodneck Road. The town beach and parking lot are at the end of Woodneck Road. For parking, a resident beach sticker is required in the summer.
