    Interesting easy shaded walk (leashed)

    Super cool find. Fairly short, fairly easy walk with a lot of shade / woods. The place used to be an old amusement park / zoo / roadside attraction. A few foundations (bear cage?) are left behind (on the Sommersworth side) and cute to check out (photo op). Also saw some deer.
    History: "Willand Pond was the site of a popular recreation area with dance halls and early electric lights accessible by trolley car. Today it is a quiet tree-lined pond squeezed between two highly traveled state routes. The [66-acre] pond is stocked with trout and is surrounded by a trail that follows the northern shoreline jointly developed by both Dover and Somersworth and open to small boats without motors. The pond, in the Piscataqua watershed, was called Humphrey’s Pond in the late 18th century. In the early 20th...[it] housed a Central Park at the end of what is now called Central Avenue...[It was also previously] called Burgett Park."
