The Crystal Pond Park Commission oversees the day-to-day operation of Crystal Pond Park, including activities, usage, facility development and management, and hiring of personnel to staff any approved programs.




Crystal Pond Park is managed on behalf of the Towns of Eastford and Woodstock with these purposes in mind:

  1. to enhance the public's use and enjoyment of the park and its facilities;
  2. to provide the financial structure which pays for the park's operation; and
  3. to maintain the park's natural beauty and environmental health.




The Commission consists of ten regular members, five of which are registered voters in Eastford, and five of which are registered voters in Woodstock.  Commission members are appointed for 2-year terms by their respective Boards of Selectmen.
