Here is a map with more information about the Houghton's Pond Recreation Area. We will be gathering at Picnic Site 5. The picnic area is different than the main entrance so please read exact directions below.
Directions: From Route 93, take exit 3 (Houghton's Pond, Ponkapoag Trail exit) from Rte. 93. Follow the signs to Houghton's Pond. Do NOT turn off at the Houghton’s Pond Athletic Fields, Picnic area sign, but keeping going on Ponkapoag Trail about ¼ mile to the next turn off for picnic site 5. You can enter 119 Blue Hill River Rd, Milton, MA 02186 into your GPS for exact location.
We plan to play games--volleyball, ultimate frisbee, wiffle ball and corn hole--and organize a group hike for those interested.
The grill will be going for hamburgers and hot dogs, and we'll have chips and watermelon. Feel free to bring a side dish or game to share.
The pond will be open for swimming, although there will not be a life guard on duty. There is a nice changing room/bath house by the lake.
