Haggetts Pond is the reservoir for the town of Andover, Massachusetts, United States. It is located in the western part of the town and also lends its name to a road. The Merrimack River is connected to the pond to add volume to the reservoir.

It is bordered by Route 133 on the south. Not far to the northwest is Interstate 495; to the northeast is Interstate 93. Haggetts Pond is located at 42°38′36″N 71°12′18″W / 42.64333°N 71.20500°W / 42.64333; -71.20500.

Electric motorboating and fishing are allowed at Haggetts Pond but swimming is not. Hiking trails, some converted out of a former railway (the Lowell and Lawrence Railroad), encircle the pond.

The Pond also gives its name to a road (Haggetts Pond Road) that starts to the west of the pond itself. Haggetts Pond Road transverses Route 133, but the vast majority of its length is on the side north of the pond. (Of the 245 houses on Haggetts Pond Road, 240 of them are on the north side.)
