Co-op Cookout June 26, 2022


We are using Picnic Area 5, which is on the West side of Houghton’s Pond, off Blue Hill River Rd.  
USE THIS LINK for GPS directions to the nearest parking lot.  

If this lot is full, try looking for spaces along Blue Hill River Rd along the South side of the pond. The road is marked with a sign that says “Houghton’s Pond – Picnic Sites and Ball Fields”.   These parking spaces are a 5-10 minute walk from our picnic site.

Tomorrow is expected to be a hot day, but the picnic site is in a cool, shady area under some lovely pine trees, next to the pond.  If you would like to swim, the swimming area is a 5-10 minute walk away from our picnic site, as are the nearest bathrooms. The picnic area has tables and benches, and we will have a grill and coolers for cold drinks, plus veggie and non-veggie options for the grill.  

See this map of Houghton’s Pond for more information.

Things you might want to bring: camp chairs, side dishes or stuff for the grill, bug spray, towels, swim suits, blankets for sitting on, and toys/games for kids.  These are only suggestions!  Nothing is required to attend, just yourself.

If you need help finding us, please call or text 617-446-3608.
