This 2.5-acre pond in the Crow Point neighborhood offers opportunities for nature study and seasonal ice skating. It has walking trails on two sides, about 0.2 miles altogether.
According to Hingham’s “Parklands for the Public” map, when Crow Point was a summer resort, this pond was employed as a source of ice.
This land is within the region of the Massachuseuk (or Massachusett) Native American tribe.
Look for the “Fee Street” sign on Grove Avenue. It’s more of a path than a street, and it will lead you to the pond. Look for the rocky outcrop about 0.1 mile down the path. The trail continues along 2 sides of the pond. Please be mindful of private property.
