About Gorton Pond and Little Gorton Pond
Gorton Pond is a 58-acre peaceful oasis in a dense suburban neighborhood. There are houses and buildings all around the pond, except for a small public beach at the southeast corner, but most of the houses are at least a bit screened by trees. Gasoline engines are not allowed on the pond so any boats on the pond should be relatively slow moving. About 900 feet east of the boat ramp is an elaborate, handicapped-accessible fishing dock with two roofed gazebos. To get this dock by land go back out to Veterans Memorial Drive and walk east for a few hundred feet and look for the dock on your left at the back of a parking lot. This is also the parking lot for the beach. The beach is just a little further east down a path that runs next to the road. The dock is designed for fishing and has a railing all around it so it is not suitable for getting in and out of a boat. The boat ramp is also the better place to launch hand-carried boats.
