Description

The Waypoint Canoe program will give you access to one of the best ponds in the Boston area: Spot Pond. Enjoy the fun and serenity of the water all while being part of a supportive community. Benefit from the wide array of adaptive canoe equipment and instruction designed to meet your individual needs. Our highly trained staff will instruct, support, and encourage you as you learn new skills or further develop your existing ones. All canoe programs will be custom designed to fit the needs of you and/or your group. 

Instructors: Rob (781) 205-0736  and Mary ([email protected]; 781-325-7980) Please call or email the instructor or the Waypoint office if you are lost, late, or cancelling. 

Location/Directions: Please use the 4 Woodland Road, Stoneham, MA 02180 (Spot Pond Boat House) as your address. Here is a GPS pin for the parking lot (see photo on registration page for what it looks like on a map). Look for Waypoint signs directing into the small parking lot/boathouse. Public transit will get you to the location, but all options will drop you off at 3 Woodland Road, which will then require a ~5 minute walk to the boathouse from there. From Boston University, public transit to Spot Pond Boathouse takes ~2 hours with multiple bus/train changes.

Parking will be limited as the boathouse gets very busy. If possible, we strongly encourage you to consider taking public transportation or getting dropped off on this date. 

Conditions: Spot Pond is a large pond. Due to it's
size and location near 93, there is chance of wind and noise of traffic. We
will stay close to shore and will be paddling in a calmer section of the pond
and will avoid the center of the pond. There is a chance of small waves/choppy
water, but no to limited boat traffic. Also, the boat launch does has a steep
grade to it, so transferring to an off road wheelchair provided by Waypoint
will be required to get to the dock. Waypoint staff will provide all necessary
gear and help/direct this process.

Bathrooms: There will be an accessible porta potty available. 

What to bring:

  • Water bottle
  • Sandals with a heel strap or sneakers that you don't mind getting wet
  • Sunglasses with a strap
  • Sunscreen
  • Hat
