Leverett Pond is one of the most beautiful natural landscapes in the Pioneer Valley and a gateway to the Leverett community. People come for fishing, ice fishing, skating, boating, cross-country skiing, bird watching, and more. It’s home to eagles, blue herons, geese, beavers, otters, osprey, turtles, fish, and an abundance of other wildlife.
Early records show Ye Olde Fish Pond occupied an area within the northern third of the current pond footprint. During the aftermath and cleanup of the Hurricane of ‘38, it served as a repository for sawn logs from a temporary sawmill built on its western shore. To this day, logs occasionally float to the surface, creating something of a hazard to boats. But throughout its changes over the years, Leverett Pond has been the center of naturalist recreation for the residents of Leverett and the surrounding community.
