Beautiful little pond

We have a family home nearby and walking around Windsor lake (or what we call it - Fish Pond) is relaxing and very pretty.

This is a beautiful place to picnic and lay out in the sun. However the day we went (8/16/15), the "beach" was closed to swimming because of E. coli found in the water. Don't know when swinging will be allowed again. Hope they do allow it soon. Very beautiful, seven spot!

This is a nice lake within the city, however there was no change room and the washrooms were out of order when I went. Big play area for children.

This is a nice lake. It can get crowded in the summer with summer camps but it is very pretty.There is a playground and a snack shop.

This is a beautiful little gem close to the downtown in North Adams. There are miles of hiking trails, swimming with a lifeguard during the day, (there is a small parking fee during the summer), camping at Historic Valley Campground, non-motorized boating, a stocked lake for fishing summer or winter, concerts every Wednesday evening during July and August, a seasonal...

We traveled up the steep streets of North Adams to find Windsor Lake. There were few there enjoying a calm November day. The lake was calm and reflecting the trees and grasses surrounding the lake. We saw signs for campers and a sandy beach area on the other side of the lake. It seemed as though there were construction machines... More

Windsor Lake is really beautiful. It's a great spot to go swim, hike, bike, canoe or kayak. During Summer the Lake offers food, drinks and dessert. There are pavilions for parties and if you want to camp out there you can do that too. The campground is in the back and they have their own private spot for swimming that... More

Apparently this is a man made lake. It also seems to be much loved by locals. It's only a few minutes drive from the centre of North Adams. There's an area set aside for swimming and a cafe that's only open in the summer. If you want somewhere nice to go and read a book for a couple of hours,... More

It's a sweet lake for summer fun. There's sand and shade and grass. Life guards? Often, during the summer. Picnic tables? Got 'em. Food shack and public bathrooms? Camping? Got that too. Sometimes there are concerts at the park too. You'll need a parking permit you can pay for either as a one-day pass, or you can get a summer... More
