    North Hill Marsh Pond
    Duxbury Ponds Walking Tour #1

    The 38-acre North Hill Marsh Pond is located in Duxbury MA. The pond is the headwaters to the Back River.

    An audubon wildlife sanctuary borders this pond to the south, and the North Hill Country Club. The water quality is impaired due to non-native aquatic plants in the pond.

    The Massachusetts Audubon Society's 129-acre sanctuary on Mayflower Street in Duxbury MA includes a forest, bike trails, and a 90-acre pond. It is accessible via Merry Avenue, off Route 14, borders this pond to the northeast.

    Round Pond
    Duxbury Ponds Walking Tour #2

    Round Pond is another Duxbury reservoir. It is located northeast of Pine Lake, northwest of Island Creek Pond, and southwest of North Hill Marsh Pond. An inlet provides the inflow for this reservoir from Pine Lake. The reservoir is associated hydro logically with an adjacent cranberry bog operation.

    Pine Lake
    Duxbury Ponds Walking Tour #3

    This 23-acre Duxbury lake is found in the village of Tinkertown. The lake is located southwest of Round Pond, northwest of Island Creek Pond, and east of Route 3 near the East Street underpass. The outflow is a small stream that flows into Round Pond. A small subdivision lies along the southern shore of the lake.

    Island Creek Pond
    Duxbury Ponds Walking Tour #4

    This 43-acre pond is in the village of Tinkertown. The pond is located north of Mill Pond, south of North Hill Marsh Pond, and southwest of Pine Lake and Round Pond. The pond is the headwaters to Island Creek.

    The water quality is impaired due to non-native aquatic plants and non-native fish in the pond. Crocker Park, an open space area owned by the Town of Duxbury, is situated along the southern shore of the pond.
