Nabnasset Pond is located about 2 miles north of Westford Center. Aquatic vegetation is abundant and common, particularly in the southern end and coves. Much of the vegetation is non-native. Feeding the pond is a large marsh surrounding the west inlet. The shoreline is fairly heavily developed with average sized year-round homes. The Nabnasset Lake Preservation Association was formed in 1990 to represent the lake abutters in dealing with the failure of the Byrne Ave. dam. Since 1990, the NLPA has acted as a watchdog group for the health and safety of Nab Lake for the present and future generations. The Nabnasset Improvement Association is a non-profit organization whose charter is to improve its owned properties surrounding Nabnasset Lake for the benefit and enjoyment of the local residents and its members.
