The Cobbett's Pond Impovement Association (CPIA) is a non-profit, volunteer based organization whose purpose is to oversee the well-being of Cobbett's Pond. It is our goal to maintain the health and beauty of Cobbett's Pond so that all may enjoy it's beauty for generations to come.
Cobbetts Pond is a 345-acre water body located in Rockingham County in southern New Hampshire, United States, in the town of Windham. It is approximately two miles long, and the shoreline forms the shape of an 8. The average depth is 33 feet, with a maximum depth of 50 ft.
Cobbett's Pond is home to many different types of lakeside homes, ranging from seasonal cottages to year-round multi-million-dollar houses. These homes are all part of the Cobbett's Pond Village District. Located on the west edge of the lake is the Windham Town Beach. The beach is open to the public and has an enclosed swimming area. The area is supervised by a lifeguard.
During the summer months, watersport shows, boat parades, and fireworks take place. There are no posted speed limits for boats, but there is a warden that occasionally patrols the lake by boat. The winter months are less busy on the lake, since most homes are only seasonal and fit to be used in warm weather. Ice fishing and skating are common activities during the winter.
Cobbetts Pond is primarily a spring-fed lake. Water from the pond flows via Golden Brook and Beaver Brook to the Merrimack River in Lowell, Massachusetts.
The CPIA has been awarded a grant to develop a watershed restoration plan for Cobbetts Pond. This effort is currently underway. More information and updates on the project can be viewed by clicking here.
