Ponkapoag Boardwalk

"Ponkapoag, the name is aboriginal, meaning "sweet water".

 

It was beside Ponkapoag Pond that the first residents settled. They were members of the Massachusetts tribe who had been displaced from their former settlement at the mouth of the Neponset River as English colonists occupied more and more of the land near Boston.
