Had an enjoyable visit! Not sure why the season ends so early for Morse Pond, but would be great if it was open through Labor Day, even if only on weekends.

My only disappointment was that the pedalmboat was broken; I was looking forward to using it.

We wanted to rent a canoe and we had to wait for 20 minutes, However when we came back, they told us someone else had already promised the boat and was going out first. We came back in an hour and the people never came back. We stood waiting over 20 minutes until the hour which was approaching the limit of when you could take a boat out. They then let us take a kayak and a standing one person without charging us more because of our trouble.

We bought the groupon solely on the promise of paddleboats, but when we used the groupon the only paddleboat they had was out of commission.

About Wellesley Recreation Department

From their home base in the Warren Building, officials of the Wellesley Recreation Department fine-tune a year-round roster of sports leagues and community classes. Adults master crafts that range from pottery throwing to Capoeira, a blend of Brazilian martial arts and dance. Kids channel their creativity into painting courses or the Star Wars: Jedi Training class, which often includes creating a recycled droid and lightsaber lessons with retired stormtroopers. All of the programs are self-supporting, so directors charge reasonable fees and divvy up the money among materials, instructors' salaries, and other necessary expenses.

During the summer, throngs of people advance on Morses Pond, an ocean lookalike complete with a sandy beach, water slide, and volleyball nets, and kids aged 5–12 fend off boredom with summer day camps. Meanwhile, the lights of Hunnewell Tennis Court blaze into the evening hours, allowing athletes to face off after dark when the sun is taking its nap.
