Unpack a Spring Picnic at Spy Pond
If you’re looking for a natural wonder to explore, head to Sky Pond. This unique body of water in Arlington was born thousands of years ago, created by melted glaciers that filled the craters with water. Today, the pond remains full despite the lack of streams or water feeding into it.
There’s a nicely paved trail that runs along the lake, so you can walk or jog with some incredible views to motivate you. As the weather starts to get warmer, you may see the opportunity to canoe or paddleboat, both of which offer a different perspective to enjoy. After you’ve worked up an appetite hiking and boating, take a moment to relax and soak up the idyllic views. Many will pack a picnic to enjoy on the sprawling green space or atop a rock that overlooks the water. It’s the ultimate way to relax!
