Join the fun when the Friends of Spy Pond Park hosts its annual Fun Day!
Come celebrate all that Spy Pond and its public park have to offer for all ages,
and maybe lend a hand as an ALT volunteer.
* Music on the lawn, nature projects, and arts and crafts adventures.
* A special feature of the day is guided tours of Elizabeth Island, leaving from
the Spy Pond boat ramp, with help from the Arlington/Belmont Crew Team and ALT
volunteers (see below for your chance to help!).
* Participate in the dedication of Spy Pond Park’s new sculpture installation at
Linwood Circle. Penny the swan, sculpted by Kevin Duffy now has a permanent home
in the park.
* Observe the Mystic River Watershed Association (MyRWA) testing Spy Pond’s water
throughout the afternoon. Using an instrument called a Secchi disk, the Watershed
folks perform dissolved oxygen and water clarity tests on our pond’s water to determine
The Land Trust needs a few hardy volunteers to help visitors in and out of the
boats at the boat ramp and at the island landing site.
Email Ann LeRoyer [email@example.com] if you are interested in volunteering
for an hour or more during the afternoon, and you’ll get a prioritized trip to
the island for your efforts.
