The restoration and maintenance of Nashawannuck Pond, Easthampton's downtown landmark, is a labor of love - involving ongoing projects, both big and small. This website was created, in part, to help our local community learn what has been done in the past to preserve our pond and to provide information about current and future projects. The decisions we make today will be felt by generations to come.
This is an exciting time for Nashawannuck Pond. In 2013, the pond was identified as a major cultural asset to the city and has been included as the gateway to the Cottage Street Cultural District.
Our work in preventing erosion at Boathouse Beach has resulted in a brand new boat ramp and parking lot renovation, without cost to residents, which will begin construction in 2014.
On December 18, 2013 the Easthampton City Council voted to accept the grant money which will fund the Boardwalk Promenade, promising a major recreational, cultural and economic impact for our community.
The Nashawannuck Pond Steering Committee is hard at work continuing to monitor and recommend solutions for keeping our pond healthy and vital. Our fundraising efforts through WinterFest and local sponsorships has provided funding for ongoing macrophyte and invasive species management which is generally around $10,000 per year.
We cannot do this important work without the support from our community. Be a part of this exciting rebirth of our pond - volunteer on our projects, donate, participate in our fundraising activities and events, and please share our news with your friends!
