Great Pond is a large freshwater pond with two public beach areas, Great Pond Beach and Wiley Park. Great Pond Beach sits on the east side of the pond and has a roped off area for swimming. There’s also a boat ramp for launching kayaks and sailboats. Parking lines the street but there’s no attendant, so you need to purchase a weekly or seasonal sticker ahead of time. Wiley Park on the opposite end of the pond offers daily parking passes.

Parking: 60+ spaces

  • Daily Not Available
