What, a vacation-like lake in a busy Boston suburb?!!

Lake Quannapowitt, Wakefield, MA

It's hard to believe that tranquil Lake Quannapowitt, in Wakefield, MA, is just off manic Route 128. The Lake offers numerous recreational opportunities, including a lovely four mile walk around the scenic body of water. A pretty town green, open park land and a playground offer additional scenic and recreational opportunities at this jewel in the middle of northwest suburbia. Wakefield also has a nice, old-fashioned downtown with charming, old brick town buildings, a classic New England village green, independently-owned local shops and covenient parallel parking. For a town with a population of around 25,000, the Lake and small-town downtown make it seem like a much smaller town. For more information on the lake and on the Town of Wakefield, click here.
