Euston Path Rock

Euston Path Rock


Neighborhood Development




Euston Path Rock is the only City-owned, designated urban wild in Brighton. A massive puddingstone outcrop, rising from Euston Street and back to Notting Hill, dominates the site. There is a small, sparsely wooded area at the top of the outcrop, behind several buildings along Notting Hill Road. The site may attract some migrating songbirds, particularly in spring, and provides year-round habitat for resident birds, such as robins, blue jays, and chickadees.
