Morses Pond opens this week, featuring new accessible kayak launch

Morses Pond in Wellesley opens for the season this Wednesday, June 11, and you can find beach tag and other info here.

One big addition you will notice at the beach: An ADA-compliant launch designed to help physically challenged people more easily enter and exit kayaks. The launch was bankrolled via the Community Preservation Committee, Fund for Wellesley and anonymous donations.
