 At this remotely held public meeting, the DCR project team will present initial designs for the Ponkapoag Pond master plan and Fisherman’s Cove improvements. DCR’s vision for Ponkapoag Pond is to protect and restore the ecologically sensitive landscape as we create an accessible and sustainable outdoor destination – featuring hiking, wading, boating, horse riding, and cross-country skiing – that provides an opportunity to educate park users about the rich and diverse ecology of the ACEC. The project scope also includes an early action project at Fisherman’s Cove, to improve vehicular and pedestrian circulation and create accessible parking and routes.

You can see the PowerPoint for the proposed master plan here.
