Along with the gorgeous stretches of sand and surf, amenities abound at the Wolfe's Pond Park. Barbecue areas, bike paths, hiking trails, fishing spots, picnic tables, and playgrounds dot the nearby landscape. You can even find places for roller hockey and tennis, making it easy to create an activity-filled day with friends and family. Best of all for sun and sand lovers, there's even a beach right on the ocean!
Wolfe’s Pond Beach is truly one of the highlights of Wolfe’s Pond Park. Several types of seaweed are native to the area, creating a fascinating learning opportunity for children and adults alike. A wide variety of wildlife also calls the area home, including mussels, soft shell clams, and hermit crabs. The shells of the Quahog clam, which can be found at Wolfe’s Pond Beach, were actually used by local Native American tribes to make wampum beads. The shell’s blue stain on the interior made these beads especially valuable, and they were frequently featured in religious ceremonies and later as a form of currency to trade with European settlers who came to the region.
While your dog can come to the beach with you during the off season, from October to April, they will need to stay on leash and on the sand at all times. Otherwise, they can enjoy kicking up the sand and catching some pays with you. Fishing is permitted in designated areas, giving anglers a place to kick back and enjoy their favorite pastime too.
When you bring your dog to this beach, make sure to check out the Wolfe’s Pond Park Dog Run inside the park. You can let your dog off leash inside the fenced-in area, giving them a safe place to burn off excess energy, play some fetch, or meet some new puppy pals.
Always brings bags to clean up after your dog, and have snacks and water to share with your pup. Keep the leash on in all areas of Wolfe's Pond Park.
