Bass Pond Club, Inc.
A Family Friendly Oasis In The Heart Of Springfield
The Bass Pond club, Inc., is a private, nonprofit swim club in Springfield, MA. It was founded in 1957 by 200 families who joined together to purchase a lovely property on the shore of Bass Pond. The pond club is member owned and operated.
Please do not put any wooden chairs in the water. They will rot.
Guest passes are now required. Please get yours from the lifeguards.
Notice to all members: The goose deterrents are to be left on the docks until the lifeguards come on duty. Only the lifeguards should be touching them. If people continue to ignore this rule (which has been posted for 3 years) then we will keep the gate closed until the guards come in.
