2020 Pond Meadow Park Summer Nature Program Cancelled

The Weymouth-Braintree Regional Recreation Conservation District Commission has decided to cancel the upcoming 2020 Pond Meadow Summer Nature Program. After reviewing the phased reopening plan for Massachusetts, and after considerable thought and evaluation, we have made the collaborative decision to cancel the program this summer.

The financial and implementation hardships created by the new state requirements have made it impossible for a small organization such as ours to run a safe and reliable program. At this time, the risk to our students, families and staff’s safety outweighs the benefits of having the program.

We recognize the benefit of the program and are share your disappointment in the loss of the program for this year. We appreciate your continued support and hope to see you in the summer of 2021.

Sincerely,

The Weymouth-Braintree Regional Recreation Conservation District Commission

Welcome to Pond Meadow Park, a 320 acre conservation and passive recreation area spanning the Towns of Weymouth and Braintree, Massachusetts.  The park offers a wide variety of habitats, including meadows, woodlands and marshes, Smelt Brook and its tributaries, and a 20 acre pond and dam that provide flood control to protect the Weymouth Landing area.  The park also provides several miles of walking trails, including a two-mile paved bike path.  Activities in the park include hiking, bird watching, cross-country skiing, biking, and snow-shoeing. Located between Summer Street in Weymouth and Liberty Street in Braintree, the park is open year round.
