A Lynn Neighborhood Association
Community gardening on the island every Saturday 9:00am
May through September
On Monday August 13, 2018 the city of Lynn roped off the pond due to a high level of blue-green algae in the pond. Fun and Flea Day for 2018 scheduled in September is canceled. There is too much planning involved with this event and the Goldfish Pond Association members are not convinced that the water problem will be solved in the short term.
Please contact Kathy or Butch if you have already signed up and paid for space. Thank you to all sponsors, we will be in touch.
We've been informed that water testing by Solitude Lake Management (taken prior to big rain on Sunday Aug 12) indicates that the levels of blue-green algae in Goldfish Pond are dangerously high. The pond will be posted and will be cordoned off to keep people away from the water.
As of now, the annual flea market is canceled. Weekly center island maintenance is canceled. We will keep all up to date as more information becomes available.

We're always looking for more volunteers to help with planting of flowers and maintenance of the island. Each Saturday morning rotating teams meet at 9:00am at the pond. We load up the lawn mowers and other equipment into our small boat and set sail for the island. No experience necessary, just show up...we will train!
No time on Saturday? Contribute to the pond's maintenance as you are able by cleaning up litter and placing it in the several trash barrels located throughout the park. Thank you!

The Goldfish Pond Fun and Flea Day is the neighborhood association's one time fundraiser. Table space is rented to vendors, no experience necessary! It is a great chance to clean out your old stuff and make new friends. Over 5,000 people attend this great Lynn event. That's a lot of people! Better than running your own yard sale. Come support this lovely neighborhood.
