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.
The gates will be open for member use starting roughly at 8 am. Please leave the goose deterrents on the docks until the guards come in. If we find they are being removed, we will be forced to keep the gates closed until the guards come in. Thank you for your cooperation.
