What, a vacation-like lake in a busy
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.
