Bullough's Pond, a former mill pond located in Newton, Massachusetts, is now a decorative pond in a suburban neighborhood, used for bird watching and winter ice skating. In the nineteenth century it was the site of a commercial ice business. Since the early 2000's, temperatures have warmed to the point that its winter ice is no longer thick enough to support skating safely.
