The Walden Pond State Reservation is a state park and recreation area in Concord, Massachusetts. It features the National Historic Landmark, Walden Pond.

The Walden Pond is a noted area, mostly because of its connection with Henry David Thoreau who lived on the shores from the summer of 1845 to 1847. The writer, philosopher, and transcendentalist got the material for his book, Walden, from his experience living in the area.

The site of the Walden Pond State Reservation has been a tourist attraction for more than a century now. It was used as an amusement park until the park burned down in 1902. It was transformed into a state park through the efforts of community members who are decided on preserving the area?s natural and cultural significance.
