Did you ever stop and marvel at how beautiful, just how “scenic” the views are here on Manchaug Pond? It truly is a jewel! And so many vistas available to the public – from Waters Farm Living History Museum – the well-published view of “beautiful Lake Manchaug”;
from the “officially declared” scenic road – Manchaug Road – which brings you right at waters-edge with the watery expanse of a 380 acre lake, breathtaking scenes of moonlight over the water, and just the play of clouds and water meeting at a ribbon of green foliage;
from Holt Road – the road overlooking the infamous Manchaug Pond dam which gives you a magnificent view down the channel to the setting sun on the western shore…
Not to mention the wonderful opportunities provided for the public to enjoy Manchaug waters – day swimming and camping at the Old Holdbrook Place, boat launching at the public access boat ramp, camping opportunities overnight or all season at King’s Family Campground and Lake Manchaug Camping, Day camping, town softball and baseball games for children at the YMCA Camp Blanchard Facility, and oh the events at Waters Farm! Manchaug Pond… And then there are the eagles and wood ducks and herons…How scenic!
Oh yes.. my original reason for posting…
