A small pond for fishing and seasonal ice skating.


The pond is about 1/4 mile long and 600 feet wide. Like most ponds on the South Shore, this was created by a dam. An unnamed brook flows through the pond. This land is within the region of the Massachuseuk (or Massachusett) Native American tribe.

Habitats and Wildlife

This small pond is bordered to the north with wetlands. The stream that flows from south from the pond eventually joins Meadow Brook, part of the Matfield River/Taunton River watershed.

The most common fish species caught here is largemouth bass.
