A very beautiful park and beach. Lots of great green space as well as a water area and beach. It's a good area to relax. Clean and well maintained.

The lake is beautiful and nestled among the rolling hills of western Connecticut. It was perfectly calm and quiet with only 2 motor boats during our summer afternoon of kayaking. There was a refreshing breeze which was nice because temperatures were in the upper 80's!...More

Squantz Pond is certainly quieter than Candlewood Lake (right across the way) but it a great place to spend the day or just afternoon! For a beginner kayaker - this lake is perfect to work on your skills or just float around looking at all...More
