This is a drinking water supply area so no swimming is allowed however you can boat and fish. We took a nice long hike around the lake. The trails are clearly marked. It's a very popular spot. There are lots of people and dogs on leashes.

We've been going here for years. Have taken our kids here since they were little to walk on the trails, fish, or just relax and have a picnic. Taken plenty of nature walks with the kids to explore the outdoors that is close to the city.

Pristine!! A variety of terrain for all to enjoy. Manchester government doesn't get a whole lot right usually but I will say that they have done an excellent job of keeping our resavoir and the land around it protected.

a nice place to meditate, watch the ducks and the loons, i even saw an eagle swoop down and nab a fish. For more excitement you can walk, run, and bike on convenient trails. also picnic tables and an ice cream stand around the corner

Great place to hike. Lots of trails for walking and biking. We went in early fall and the scenery was great. Beautiful place for pictures all seasons.

This lake is a gem and found very close to North East Manchester , NH. Ideal for boating and my preference the lovely forest walks around the lake or the bike ( or walk) track that cuts through the forest and runs for miles. I imagine it is used primarily by locals but highly recommend it to anyone visiting Manchester... More

I like that there is no swimming (it's the water supply for Manchester). This allows for a very low-key scenic place to have a picnic or go for a walk or a sail. There are a number of walking trails available. In the fall, the foliage around the lake is stunning.

Great scenic views. Numerous areas to take photos and reflect on nature. However, people are not allowed to even dip a toe in the water!

We love the trails at Massabesic. Our dogs also love to walk here. Very clean and easy flat trail to walk on. We have found that there are not a lot of ticks or bugs here which is a plus.

I have been visiting the Northeast Delta Dental Stadium for a number of years now, both personally and through my work. This is a beautiful stadium and an affordable outing. There isn't a bad seat in the place, the food is good and the staff are very helpful. I would highly recommend this for a day out or a work... More
