Fresh Pond Reservation

Fresh Pond Reservation

Fresh Pond is a reservoir and park in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Prior to the Pond's use exclusively as a reservoir, its ice had been harvested by Boston's "Ice King," Frederic Tudor, and others, for shipment to North American cities and to tropical areas around the world. Fresh Pond Reservation consists of a 155 acre kettle hole lake, 162 acres of surrounding land, a nine hole golf course and a two and a quarter mile perimeter road popular with walkers, runners and cyclists.
