Despite some restriction due to the pandemic, Andover's Pomps Pond has been a welcome place to cool off for people from all around the region.
The pandemic-related regulations include keeping the snack bar closed and not renting boats, at least for the time being. The number of cars in the parking lot and people on the beach are being limited. And beach-goers are asked to maintain social distance and wear a mask while they are going onto or off the beach and into the bathrooms.
Pond hours are noon to 7 p.m. on weekdays and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekends.
