Goldfish Pond

A Lynn Neighborhood Association 

Join Us!

Community gardening on the island every Saturday 9:00am 

May through September

Warning: Bacteria levels in water are high

What we know so far...

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.


The annual flea market scheduled in September was canceled. Weekly center island maintenance is canceled. We will keep all up to date as more information becomes available.

Island Maintenance Every Saturday 9:00am May - September

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! 

Take Pride in Your Neighborhood!

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!

Events

Annual Neighborhood Flea Market (canceled for 2018)

The Goldfish Pond Fun and Flea Day is the neighborhood association's one time fundraiser. The 2018 Flea day was canceled due to a dangerous algae bloom in the water. 

How does the Flea market work? 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. 

  • Table space $35 in advance, $45 day of
  • Always scheduled on that 2nd Saturday in September
  • See you there 2019!
