WALDEN POND: CONCORD, MA
Looking for an open water venue? Like to swim with a group and have fun? Walden swims are a chance to get out from the city and enjoy the serenity and beauty of Thoreau's famous Walden Pond. Although spearheaded by members of the CRA Masters team, any and all swimmers are welcome, regardless of affiliation. Email [email protected] to join the list-serv.
The summer swim schedule, rain or shine, usually begins the end of May and lasts through the end of September. If the forecast looks threatening, call the Walden hotline to make sure the park is open before you drive out: 978-369-3254. Daily Parking Fee applicable or purchase the annual passe. When the park reaches capacity it will close. To organize carpools and find others to join you for a swim, email [email protected].
"NAHANT KNUCKLEHEADS": NAHANT, MA.
A committed group of open water enthusiasts meets every SUNDAY at 8AM near the blue bath house at Nahant Beach for ocean swims that cover 2 - 4+ miles. The swims are held throughout the season until it is too cold, and will happen rain or shine unless the weather creates surface conditions or currents that are too dangerous. If you are interested in joining us, please email [email protected] .
Please note that the water temperature in Nahant varies from the mid 50's to 70's Fahrenheit. It is important to bring the necessary attire to safely swim at some of these temperatures (including wetsuits and brightly colored caps to provide extra visibility in the water). These swims are targeted for stronger swimmers who are comfortable swimming in open water conditions that can rapidly change without warning. The swims are not affiliated with any group and all participants must take responsibility for their liability and safety.
Directions: Please use the Dunkin Donuts address (at entrance of parking lot) for your GPS: 2 Wilson Road Nahant, MA 01908. Parking fee applicable and it's highly recommended that return swimmers purchase a DCR season's pass to save money (same pass can be used at Walden Pond).
