Stiles Pond Beach

Stiles Pond Beach, just off Main Street, with some of the cleanest fresh water in eastern Massachusetts, is the place to meet friends and neighbors in this relaxed and fun atmosphere during the hot months of June, July and August. Membership to the Keith Koster Park at Stiles Pond is offered to residents of Boxford only for a nominal fee.

Registration is ongoing throughout the season.  Proof of residency or town employment is required.  Stiles Pond Beach Hours are weather permitting. 

The beach association's dedicated volunteers run the beach during the summer months and there are always plenty of fun things to do. There are canoes and kayaks to use all free of charge. A concession stand serving hamburgers, hot dogs, pizza and slush is open during prime time hours. There's a basketball and volleyball area, a playground for the children, docks, floats and plenty of picnic tables. Family picnics and cookouts are a tradition at Keith Koster Park.

Stiles Pond Beach offers swimming lessons by certified Red Cross instructors. Swimmers will be evaluated and placed in the appropriate swim group. During Swim Lessons, only participants in the lessons are allowed in the water.

PLEASE READ THE BROCHURE FOR ALL FEES AND RULES. THE LIFEGUARDS ARE EMPOWERED TO REVOKE OR SUSPEND A MEMBER'S PRIVILEGES FOR VIOLATIONS OF ANY OF THE REGULATIONS.

The Beach operates exclusively by the fees that the membership pay and no tax dollars are spent towards improvements or maintenance. The Beach Committee has worked hard over the years to make Keith Koster Park something we can all be proud of. We look forward to seeing everyone this summer. If you have any comments or suggestions please feel free to contact the Beach Director.
