Celebrate the land, water, wildlife and people that make Fresh Pond Reservation a unique and vital part of our City!

What is Fresh Pond Day?

Fresh Pond Reservation is truly Cambridge's green gem - an urban wild that protects Fresh Pond, Cambridge's in-city drinking water reservoir. Fresh Pond Day is the Cambridge Water Department's annual tribute to this unique Reservation that is a vital natural resource, an invaluable sanctuary for wildlife, and a beloved recreational escape in the City. So...let's give Fresh Pond the celebration, jubilation and love it deserves; join in the festivities! Live wildlife presentations, a wildlife and bike parade, live music, facepainting, truck climb-aboards, tours and more will abound, and - it's free and open to all!

Where & When?

We party for Fresh Pond on Saturday, May 20th, 2017! The festivities will happen all around the Water Purification Facility at Fresh Pond Reservation, 250 Fresh Pond Parkway.
