Public access to Great Neck Conservation Area is available at the Overlook at 34 Clark Road. It was constructed by Town staff and volunteers to integrate into the natural landscape. This site was opened to the public in the spring of 2011 and interpretive educational signage provides information about the history of the pond and value of the pond for wildlife habitats. Visitors are able to view the pond, with expansive vistas toward Plum Island in the Ipswich Bay as well as Cape Ann to the south.
