Ice Harvesting and Merry Making

Wednesday, August 8th and 29th, 5:30-6:30 p.m.

The railroad brought day trippers from Boston to the amusement park at Walden Pond.  Earlier, during Thoreau’s first winter at Walden, the railroad carried ice cut from the pond to the port of Boston where sailing ships took the ice to hot lands…

Meet a park interpreter at the Thoreau house replica near the parking lot for a talk and walk to Ice Fort Cove on the far side of Walden Pond.

This is a free program but there is a $5 parking fee. In order to protect the resource Walden Pond has a visitor capacity. When capacity is reached the reservation closes for several hours. All children must be accompanied by an adult. No dogs permitted unless they are working guides. For more information call park staff at (978) 369-3254. Reasonable accommodation upon request.
