Johnson’s Pond

A glacial-kettle pond surrounded by woods, this 3.2 acre property in Spring Glen is bordered on three sides by residential properties on Thornton, Greenway, and Ingram Streets and on the fourth side by Regional Water Authority watershed land along the Mill River. The pond itself is shallow. Covered in summer with buttonbush and duckweed, it freezes readily in the winter, making an inviting spot for ice-skating. The woods and pond support a wide variety of plants and wildlife year-round. More than 120 species of birds have been observed here, as well as turtles, peepers, and snakes. This site is open for limited passive recreational use, such as walking and bird-watching, and ice-skating in winter. It is accessible from Ingram St.  or Thornton St. at the far west point of Spring Glen.


The Farmington Canal Heritage Greenway

The Greenway is a canal line and railroad route converted into a paved trail for pedestrian traffic. The Greenway covers a route of approximately 84 miles (over half has been developed) from New Haven, CT to Northampton, MA. Enjoy walking, jogging, cycling or rollerblading along 7.2 miles of scenic Hamden. You can start on the trail in Spring Glen, off Connolly Parkway.
