  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Its a nice place for fishing small catches like sunfish. Kid friendly. Very clean. Great for a day trip. No motorized boats or swimming.
  • Good place for a short run or walk. The pond is very picturesque. Parking is limited but go during the day and you should be fine. Go in the evening and a lot of residents park there so it's tougher to get a spot.
  • Awesome park for the weekend. Can sometimes be crowded. But great views and fun times here.
