Description

Walden Pond
Henry David Thoreau lived at Walden Pond from July 1845 to September 1847. His experience at Walden provided material for the book 'Walden', credited with helping to inspire environmentalist and anti-consumerist movements around the world. Because of Thoreau's legacy, Walden Pond has been designated a US National Historic Landmark and is considered the birthplace of the conservation movement. Park guides and interpreters provide seasonally appropriate tours and educational programs throughout the year. These activities include nature crafts, story time, poetry readings, tracking programs, and Thoreau walks. Approximately 600,000 people visit the site each year today. The Reservation includes the 102-feet deep glacial kettle-hole pond. Mostly undeveloped woods totaling 2680 acres, called "Walden Woods," surround the reservation.
