Goldfish Pond is a delightful neighborhood of Lynn, Massachusetts. The first settlers in 1629 made their homes near a pond used for watering cattle and pigs. In 1630 the Edmund Ingalls family built their home near what is now Goldfish Pond. The pond was built in 1870 and is located near Bloomfield Street. A historical marker was placed on it in 1915. History claims goldfish were placed in the pond by young boys and thrived. Then the city decided to drain the swamp around the Goldfish Pond and put in a walkway in the shape of a heart, and an island was created in the center of the pond. In the latter 1800s, it was a favorite gathering place for social events. The pond continues to be improved with the addition of flowers and structural improvements.
The Goldfish Pond is an oasis in Lynn. The park has a volunteer garden of some 3,000 flowering plants as well as floating fountains. Neighbors around the pond have formed the Goldfish Pond Association to ensure that the pond doesn’t go into disrepair, and there are annual plantings and fundraisers toward that goal which draws thousands of people.
