Lake Pearl Beach in Wrentham, MA, offers a remarkably simple but joyful summer fun recipe: a place to swim, lay out on the sand, have lunch and a drink on the deck at the snack bar, and pay a reasonable price (previous years had been $12 a car)) to access these instant memories.

Harking back to the old-time days when families flocked to the local beach instead of a mammoth mall or playing video games in central air conditioning, Lake Pearl looks nostalgically retro with a swimming dock, summer homes in the distance, a
lush, expansive green park with a modest playground area, boaters peacefully cruising well beyond the ropes, and sandcastles as the closest example of architectural overdevelopment that you'll find in this quiet region of suburban southwest Boston.

By Boston area standards, the water seems clean and the deck is a model of relaxation -- several tables with umbrellas offering a prime location for the wonderful panoramic lake views and sandy beach area. The menu is limited but familiar, including summer staples like hamburgers, hot dogs, lemonade and ice cream sandwiches. Traditionally, that is all one requires on a hot summer day, although it must be noted that a food paradise is located within the Lake Pearl complex -- Lake Pearl Luciano's, renowned as a function facility that also serves an incredible Sunday morning brunch that is open to the public.  Of course, you'll experience splendid lake views there, too!

Lake Pearl Beach has a lifeguard on duty, a changing area, restrooms, and even a large, indoor gazebo area for functions. Open to the public Monday through Friday and Sunday (Saturday is for adults only, as the deck and its snack area becomes a lounge; no children allowed)), Lake Pearl Beach makes for a very nice day, indeed, for those Boston area residents in search of a secluded beach destination.
