There are 5 comments on Walden Pond, the Bay State’s Deepest Natural Body of Fresh Water

  1. The article neglected to mention the pond is stocked by the state every spring with brown trout, atlantic salmon, and other species.

    To fish you will need a license from the state which can be had by the day/week/season at mass.gov.

  2. It is my favorite place in the world all the time but especially early morning and late afternoon. A real jewel of nature courtesy to ice age. The water is really clean and pleasant. It is also a biking distance from Concord, a historical town with museums from The Revolutionary War and a cute downtown.

    Also, there is Walter Groupius’s house, father of Bauhaus, now a museum, close by.

  3. Walden is a gem that we are fortunate to live near. Thank you for mentioning the challenging parking situation. In my experience, the lot is full *well* before noon, and there is nowhere else to park to be able to access the pond.
