MEDFORD, MA — The Medford Recreation Department announced new regulations for Wright’s Pond and Tufts Pool in August, based on expanded guidance from the state and feedback from residents and staff about pond and pool operations.
Starting in August, the Recreation Department will make the following adjustments:
Reservations can be made in two hour time slots (three two-hour time slots will be available for each day). Three blocks of two hours will be available, rather than the current three-hour blocks. This time change will allow us to accommodate more people per day.
Capacity at Wright’s Pond will be increased to 60 people per block. This will allow a total of 180 residents each day to access the pond as opposed to the current 100 per day. The pool will also be increased to 40 people per day. In total, 300 people will be able to visit these facilities each day.
