Horn Pond is a great area to visit for nature, kayaking, canoeing, fishing, sunset watching, birdwatching, dog walking, a place to take the kids, hill climbing or just relaxing.
There is a large network of walking trails through varying landscape. there is also a designated walking route around the pond. you can climb up the mountain for a great view of Winchester and Woburn.
It's perfect for families... It's close by, it has geese, swans, ducks to see, there are benches to have a snack at, lots of paved trails and trails through the woods, you can walk, run, ride bikes, there are a few exercise areas set up like a bench to do sit-ups, pull-up bars, rope steps to climb, etc. And restrooms which are key when you have young kids!
During seasonal spring, summer, fall periods, a vendor will usually be there selling sausages, and cold drinks. Many joggers, bikers, boaters, and walkers can be seen. It is a nice place to get away from it all, yet not have to go very far from home. Kids love the pond!

Nestled right off route 38 in the heart of Woburn near the Winchester Line. it is accessible by Arlington Rd/Lake St in Woburn and is accessible by the route 134 bus line in Woburn. There is a parking lot open till sunset on site.
Beautiful place Inadequate social distancingThe whole recreation area is lovely., with well maintained, level paths Perfect for walking, biking, fishing. The problem is that there was a big COVID outbreak and many people are still not wearing masks or physically distancing. Many were walking down the middle of the paths and not moving over when people approached. I did not feel safe.
