Houghton's Pond: a great place for kids to play...
Houghton's Pond is a great escape during the summer. They have lifeguards on duty on the large section of beach. There is a division on the beach where there is a "toddler" section and children can wade in knee deep water. The entire beach is ropped off for swimming. There is a concession stand and restrooms available - very convenient. There is also a large playground area with swings, slides, and climbing gyms. It is a nice place to take in the sun and enjoy the outdoors. Lots of wildlife to enjoy - look out for the geese - they are very brave and will come right over when you take out your lunch! There are also hiking trails, BBQ and picnic tables available.
