Green Pond is an all natural “Pond” formed by glacial action some 10- 15 thousand years ago. Much of the northwest shore rises steeply 150 – 200 feet and is strewn with large boulders, typical of glacial areas. To the southwest, is an area of wetlands, further limiting the developable area around this unique body of water.
