Goose Pond is a bit of a local's secret swimming find, with it's location in the middle of Chatham's forested center. Goose Pond is a lovely, unspoiled fresh water kettlehole pond ((a shallow body of water formed by retreating glaciers); and at 38 acres, Goose Pond is the largest of Chatham's freshwater ponds great for swimming, canoeing, and kayaking. And, perfect for a family beach day destination.
