currently the town is erecting a dog park where you can take your dog and walk him around but just remember not to leave anything behind it's going to cause problems for the pond

Shallow water great for little kids swimming and a nice place for a family gathering bbq . Guards willnot bother you. Water is not as clear as other cape cod ponds.

Hathaway Pond is really like a little gem! The water is beautiful , clean, sparkling and the sand is so clean. There are picnic tables for lunch and the scenery is stunning! I highly recommend next time you are in Cape Cod

Yes. Dogs are not allowed in the Hathaway's pond main entrance during the Summer. However, during the Summer Season, you must park & access the pond trails from Phinney's Lane.
