Walden Pond is a lake in Concord, Massachusetts, in the United States. A famous example of a kettle hole, it was formed by retreating glaciers 10,000–12,000 years ago.[4] The pond is protected as part of Walden Pond State Reservation, a 335-acre (136 ha) state park and recreation site managed by the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation.[1] The reservation was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1962 for its association with the writer Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862), whose two years living in a cabin on its shore provided the foundation for his famous 1854 work, Walden; or, Life in the Woods. Let a visit to Walden Pond bring you back in time to the mid-1800's. Experience the connection with nature that inspired Henry David Thoreau's Walden. Enjoy a day of swimming, walking around the famous pond or boating out on the water. Also be sure to visit the replica of Thoreau's single-room cabin.

arandnear was the summer home of the Banks family for several generations, with Arthur Banks—an accomplished political scientist and professor—its most recent resident. Banks’s grandfather, Charles Goodspeed, named the property because, at 50 miles from his home in Wollaston, it was “far” enough to require a two-day journey by horse to reach, but “near” enough to be a vacation home. The park-like grounds at Farandnear are perfect for playing, picnicking, relaxing, and more. Along its easy wooded trails, you’ll find fields of wildflowers, an arboretum full of more than 80 cool conifer trees, the remnants of an old cranberry bog, and Paradise, a 10-acre parcel where huge hemlocks grow. Keep your ears open throughout your journey: you’ll hear lots of birds calling, including black-capped chickadees, catbirds, and barred owls.
