In a Nutshell

Morses Pond beach buzzes with sunbathers during the summer months, and waves ripple around rental kayaks, paddleboards, or paddleboats.

Unlike the seashore, pond-side beaches are free of seaweed, sharks, and seagulls that constantly photo-bomb family-vacation pictures. Enjoy a peaceful day at the beach with this Groupon.

  • $10 for a one-day beach-pass package (a $20 value)
  • $35 for a four-day beach-pass package (an $80 value)<p>

Customers bask in the sun at Morses Pond beach for a full day, enjoying an hour of exercise atop a kayak, paddleboard, or paddleboat. The beach opens for the weekends of May 26–28 and June 2–3, and will then be open all week from June 6 to August 19.<p>

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.
