After Work Swim at Walden Pond

Wednesday, June 21, 2017 12:00 AM

Come join us for an early summer swim at Walden Pond after work at the Walden Pond State Reservation in Concord! What is more refreshing than going for a swim after work? The weather is getting hotter, and the water at Walden Pond is warming up rapidly. The Walden Pond swims will be taking place at an ongoing basis throughout the summer twice a month. As the water gets warmer the goal will be to swim across the pond and back for roughly a mile of swimming.
