| Newton MA News and Politics BlogYou’re invited to an Upper Falls neighbor organized skating party on Sunday afternoon starting at 1:30 PM on New Pond.

This has become an informal neighborhood annual event.  Neighbors Lee Fisher and Evan Westrate keep an eye on it all winter waiting for the perfect weekend with the right weather and ice conditions.  This is it.

A hockey net will be set up in one area while another area can be used for general skating. BYOHC (Bring Your Own Hot Chocolate) and, if so inclined, a hockey stick.  Everyone is welcome!   They’ll be music playing, people skating, neighbors hanging.  Come on by.

New Pond is the little known body of water that flows into the Charles River at Hemlock Gorge. New Pond lies along the south side of Rt. 9 just west of the Stone Barn with parking on Ellis Street in Newton Upper Falls.  The pond is between Rt 95 and the Charles River.  From Ellis St, walk up the Rt9 exit ramp and its on your left.
