What is your favorite lake or pond in Massachusetts and why?

Mine is Horn Pond in Woburn because my grandparents house was adjacent to some city owned land along the water. It is where I spent a good amount of my childhood and met many other people doing various activities in the area during those years.

I drove past Horn Pond for the first time a few weeks ago. It looked lively and fun.

Not crazy about Walden Pond, hmmmm maybe Spy Pond in Arlington.

My guess is you were on either Arlington Road or Lake Street in Woburn. My grandparents house was on Arlington Road. There is a huge amount of conservation land on the opposite side of the pond, in fact people can walk from the Arlington Road area all the way to Cambridge Street (Route 3) through the various walking trails.

The pond has become immensely popular over the past 10 to 15 years. The pond was polluted when I was a kid because a sewer line was built along the water's edge to hook up the Burlington Mall and surrounding office buildings to the MWRA. In the early years the flow wasn't regulated properly and the line would overflow. It has since been cleaned up and it shows with the current level of popularity.

Lake Pearl in Wrentham. Tucked away and not too over crowded. Nice houses lining the shores.

Chebacco Lake in Wenham, where that dumb Adam Sandler movie Grownups was filmed. Still a beautiful lake though

Lake Monponsett in Hanson/Halifax because I grew up on it and my family has had property there for over 120 years. lately the water has gotten dirty so I don't swim there anymore but boating is still fun.
Now a days and closer to home is Long Pond in Brewster/Harwich. It is large and the water is clean.

Oyster Pond in Chatham is my family's favorite. When I'm alone I like Dug Pond in Natick. To be honest, I think people just prefer whatever little pond is close to their house.
