South Natick Dam Park area, a few spring pics May 15, 2021 by Deborah Brown Leave a Comment Just hanging around the South Natick Dam Park area on a beautiful spring day. One of two millstones at S. Natick Dam park, which date to a former grist mill that operated in South Natick during colonial times. This shot is oriented upriver, toward Dover. This angle is oriented downriver, toward Wellesley. The future of the aging and iconic dam is in the process of being decided. By the end of the year, the town hopes to present a recommendation to the Select Board that could range from repairing the dam to removing it. Recent state reports have shown the dam to be in “fair” condition. A plaque embedded in a rock at South Natick Dam Park says, “Here on the site of a timber dam first built about 1760 by Matthew Hastings this dam built by the town has on this second day of September 1934 been completed.” A baseball-themed Little Free Library. Many of the Little Free Library books have been donated by the Bacon Free Library. The Eliot Church of Natick has its own Little Free Library, making South Natick the area of town with the greatest number of libraries per capita. Spring flowers bloom at South Natick Dam Park.
