Although this summer may look different than summers past, we are happy to announce that Ames Pond is open every day from 10:00 am - 5:00 pm for Stoughton residents.
To enjoy the Ames Pond beachfront, please purchase a morning or afternoon pass in advance on StoughtonRec.org with a credit or debit card. A limited number of passes will be available for purchase at the gate. We cannot accept any cash payments at the gate. You can purchase passes up to 3 days in advance. In case of inclement weather, we can issue a credit to use for another day upon request.
Morning passes are from 10:00 am - 1:30 pm
Afternoon passes are from 1:45 pm - 5:00 pm
Children under 2 are free.
Kids and seniors are $3.50
Adults are $4.50
All discounts will be shown at the very end of your registration page.
A limited number of week long day passes (Monday-Friday 10:00 am - 5:00 pm) will be available. These begin at $20 per person and each member of your household (up to 5 people) purchased after that will receive an increasing discount.
There are no family, season, or senior passes this year to help accommodate as many residents as we can during this time of limited capacity. Additionally, there are no swim lessons this year. We understand how this may be frustrating or upsetting, but please know these changes were necessary to operate under the current regulations by the state of MA and at the local level. This is not permanent and both season passes and swim lessons will be back for the 2021 season.
The beachfront will be implementing a carry in, carry out trash policy and there will be no trash bins at the pond. Groups are limited to <10 and all groups must keep their social distance on the beach. Masks must be worn when entering the beachfront and when social distance cannot be maintained. All children must be accompanied by an adult.
As usual, there are no boats or dogs allowed at the Ames Pond beachfront during staffed hours. Additionally, there can be no ball games this summer (spike ball, pro kadima, etc).
We worked with our town officials to prioritize the health and safety of all at the pond this summer, and we appreciate your flexibility and understanding during this time.
