Johnson's Pond (Flat River Reservoir): Home of Flat River Furniture

As you may or may not know, Flat River Furniture is located on Johnson's Pond in Coventry, RI. It is a fantastic area that my family has enjoyed for nearly 50 years.

"The Factory" page has been updated with the following background about this area:

Johnson's Pond is also know as Flat River Reservoir (hence the name Flat River Furniture). By damning the south branch of the Pawtuxet River, near where it is joined by the Flat River, a 659-acre lake was created.

Johnson's pond provides both municipal water and recreation. It is a great residential area with beautiful scenery and opportunities for boating and other water sports. Water skiing, wakeboarding and tubing are also popular. Fishing tournaments are regularly held on the pond. Spotted sea trout, steelhead trout, smelt, whitefish, yellow bass, pickerel and pan fish (sunfish) can all be caught here. In the winter you can find people ice fishing.

On the 4th of July families gather to watch the firework show put on by the Johnson's Pond Civic Association. The best one!

We enjoy our animals friends that regularly visit, such as the Muscovy ducks that have taken up residence on the property and an otter.

And of course there is always some swimming going on.
