I visited Windsor Lake with the family, and then we did some swimming. The water was very good, and also we saw a summer concert. Overall very good experience.

Take a break and head up to Windsor Lake aka Fish Pond. Monday's weather was perfect for visiting recently and gave me time to enjoy the sunny day, and nice relaxing views of the lake.

Small municipal park of North Adams, MA occupies approx 1/2 of Windsor Lake at the top of Bradley Street. Summer usage include camping, swimming, hiking, picnicking and canoeing/kayaking. Seasonal usage sometimes requires a small, but modest fee.( e.g. camping/picnicking.) During the summer, a weekly evening musical series with a variety of local bands is open and free to the public.

This is a fabulous little lake! It is a great place to go and spend the day picnicking, hiking, boating, (non-motorized only), or swimming (lifeguard on duty). There is a brand new playground and newly renovated bathrooms, changing rooms and a snack bar. It is in the center of North Adams, but you feel miles away from civilization when you... More

We reserved the pavilion and had a wonderful family event there. The location is lovely, restrooms are close and clean. The lake was a little low as they did some draining for weeding purposes, but people swam at the beach and seemed to enjoy. Pretty lake and nice little park.
