Overview


Description: This six-acre pond is well hidden in a residential area. The pond can be reached via a small gravel access road located approximately 50 feet north of Maine Pines Tennis Facility on Harpswell Road, but many users prefer to reach Coffin’s Ice Pond on foot using the trail system that passes through the park.

The trail system connects with the Town Commons trail network to the south and Bowdoin College to the north. A pedestrian footbridge constructed in 2008 provides convenient passage over the dam and spillway located at the south east corner of the pond.

Location: The park is located off Harpswell Road (Route 123), just west of Maine Pines Tennis Facility. The gravel access road is located just to the right of Maine Pines Tennis Facility.
