“The glacially formed 102-acre Horn Pond carries history in its waters and walkways, having once been the home of Algonquin Indians and later serving as the site for commercial ice-making businesses, sand and gravel operations, public beaches and the Woburn Parkway, a mile-long drive now open only to foot traffic.
The pond is surrounded by woods, marshes, fields and, on its west side, the 287-foot Mount Towanda, which was once used as a ski area. Hikers, joggers and nature lovers are often found on the two-mile walk around the pond.” – Kathie Ragsdale
