Newton Pond

Last Updated: 3/2018
      Newton Pond offers fishing for many warm water fish. There is no recent survey conducted.

      This pretty pond is not far from the second largest urban area in New England, Worcester.  Despite this, a quiet paddle is possible on a peaceful morning or afternoon.
There is a park that borders the south end of the pond. This pleasant area is the former Frybeck Estate.
