About Whitney Pond
Whitney Pond is a constructed pond at the confluence of the Millers River and the Millers River North Branch. Technically it is an impoundment of the river created by a dam. The large irregularly shaped pond is north of MA-12 and east of the main downtown area of Winchendon Village.

The outflow of the pond runs under the railroad rights-of-way to the Whitney Pond Dam that has a 25-foot drop. There is little development along the banks of the pond and access is limited to Glenallen Street where the Millers River flows into the pond and behind Central Street on the northwestern side of the pond.

The North Central Pathway, an old railroad right-of-way, runs along the southern side of the pond. Some informal parking (not designated or marked) is available at the intersection of Glenallen Street and MA-12. From here the trail leads northwesterly to the railroad crossings of the Whitney Pond outflow; however, the bridges are closed due to lack of safety. The trail also leads southeasterly along the Millers River towards Ashburnham.

Boat access is available for car-top boats on a gravel ramp off of Central Street. Shore access is available along most of the pond’s perimeter.
