Moscow Recreation Field
Purchased by Stowe Land Trust in 2008, the Moscow Recreation Field was transferred to the Town of Stowe. It currently has volleyball courts, a picnic area, a river access, and is open to the public for non-motorized recreation.
The property lies at the western edge of the hamlet of Moscow. Its southern boundary is the Little River, with approximately 650 feet of river frontage. Its other boundaries are residential or commercial parcels and Moscow Road. It sits at 300 feet in elevation and is mostly flat. Approximately two-thirds of the property lies within the 100-year flood zone. A riverine natural community is located between the river and open area. This riparian area serves as an essential buffer zone which provides critical wildlife habitat, discourages erosion of the stream bank, and acts as a filter for surface run-off of storm water.
From the intersection of Route 100 and Route 108 in Stowe village, take Route 100 south toward Waterbury. In 2.5 miles, turn right onto Moscow Road. After 0.8 miles, a parking area will be on your left.

Years down the road when the hamlet of Moscow has developed more fully, the area will be a critical piece of open space, recreation land and public access to the river. Gregory Federspiel, former Town Administrator
