Clear Pond opens for season


The town-owned Clear Pond, a popular cooling-off spot for generations, has opened for summer and will close for the season Aug. 25. “A lot of people like to use it for cookouts; there are picnic tables, a mini-golf course, basketball court, and small playground,” said Daniel Hopkins, who is head of the town’s park commission as well as fire chief. The pond is open daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and the cost of admittance to the spring-fed pond is $6 per day for adults and $4 per day for children up to 16. Seasonal family passes, which are available on site, are available for $75 for town residents and $100 for nonresidents, with a family considered to consist of two adults and any number of children living in the same house. People age 60 and older are admitted free. For more information, call the park commission at 508-946-8829.
