Falls Pond is comprised of an "upper" and "lower" section totaling 122 acres divided by Reservoir Street. The upper side (62 acres) was dredged about 30 years ago and allows power boating (ramp at beach) and has an average depth of 10 feet and a maximum depth of 30 feet. The shallow, lower section (60 acres) is non-power boating only and has an average depth of 10 feet and a maximum depth of 20 feet. There are 2 public beaches (Peck Rd & Barbara Rd). Yearly winter draw-downs are employed by the town to help keep the lake weed free. The bottom of both ponds is predominately mud with rock outcroppings and transparency is approximately 4 feet. The entire shoreline is fairly heavily developed with a mixture of cottages and higher end homes. There’s an Elks Club on the shore that has many local activities.
