“Arlington is dotted with these glacier-created ponds that provide a fresh outdoor experience. You can walk around the pond and reflect on how ice from these ponds was used as ballast on ships going to the East Indies (today Indonesia) for spices and other Asian luxury goods. My historian’s heart was super happy with this park.”
Located on the North shore of Spy Pond off Spy Pond Lane (near Arlington Boys & Girls Club, 60 Pond Lane), Spy Pond Park has a playground, public boat ramp (for kayaks/canoes), picnic area, and access to the Minuteman Bikeway.
