Ames Pond 2017

Open Date: June 24, 2017
Close Date: August 13, 2017
 Ames Long Pond, located on Highland Street on the Stoughton/Easton border, is the location for the Town's supervised swimming program. Significantly removed from the hustle and bustle of downtown, the beach is located in a distinctly country setting. Bordered by shade trees, the beach area is a welcoming spot to beat the heat, especially for families with young children and senior citizens. Amenities include public bathrooms and a dock system. Water quality is tested weekly during the months of June, July, and August. The hours of supervision by certified lifeguards during the summer months are 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
