  • I can't count the number of times I've biked to this location with the kids. It's location along the minuteman trail is a big plus and the view of the pond is very appeasing. During the cold days of winters this pond becomes a wonderful skating rink.
  • Beautiful park and kids play area with easy access to the Minuteman bike path. Gets crowded on weekends but weekdays offer some seclusion and serenity from the busy areas nearby.
  • One of the "go to" kids' playgrounds in East Arlington. Easy access from the bikepath. Right on the pond, so make sure to stop and say hello to the ducks as well...
  • Lived by this park for a year now, and it's been wonderful. The pond itself is a really lovely sight, you can rent a kayak to paddle around on the weekends, and the local crew team practices here. Residents, you can buy an overnight parking pass for the parking lot from the town hall, which can be really helpful if you live nearby.
  • Great park, has a nice playground with a good view on the Spy Pond. Beware of the tree branch hanging over into the playground - it helps kids escape ;)
