The Willett Pond community consists of about 85 residential abutters. Through annual dues, the residents help support maintenance costs to the pond and dam. Although the pond is private, many local residents enjoy Willett through membership in the North Walpole Fish & Game Club, located on Brook Rd at its north end.
The pond is the community’s center for recreational and educational events year round. Winter ice hockey and ice fishing tournaments are a vibrant part of the sporting events in the community. In addition, the pond provides local high school students the opportunity to study environmental science and biology in an outdoor setting.
