Open Water Swimming at Walden Pond in Concord

Breakwater Sports does not provide programs at Walden Pond. For programs and clinics at other locations, see Open Water Programs. Walden Pond is here (map) and here is the official Walden Pond website.

Coach Bill swims at Walden Pond (Concord, MA), Nantasket Beach (Hull, MA), Niles Beach (Gloucester MA), and various other locations. Former students, teammates and friends are welcome to join me (just a swim, no coaching). See my Open Water Workout Schedule page.
