Peacock Beach State Park is a convenient drive off Maine Route 201 on Pleasant Pond in Richmond, about 12 miles from Maine's capital city, Augusta. A small beach and swimming area.
History of the Area
It cost the State around $23,000 a year to operate the park. It was not regularly staffed, and the entrance fee was collected with a box at the gate that visitors were expected to place their fee into. Prior to 2010, it had been estimated that as few as 10 percent of visitors paid the fee.

In 2010, the State decided not to open the park as a cost-saving measure and offered a 25-year lease to the Town of Richmond to operate the park. The Town accepted the offer at its June 3, 2010 Town Meeting. The Town does not staff the park, aside from conducting regular maintenance with part-time employees.
