Maquan Pond is a 48-acre (190,000 m2) pond in Hanson, Massachusetts. Its average depth is 12 feet (3.7 m) and its maximum depth is 18 feet (5.5 m). The pond is a tributary to Furnace Pond, a public water supply. There has been much development along the shore. The town right-of-way is on the northern shore of the pond off Maquan Street ( Route 14). The water is acidic, so fishing is poor except for pickerel, small yellow perch and pumpkinseeds.

Camp Kiwanee, a former Camp Fire camp, is located on the eastern shore of the pond.
