As we walked through Livingstone, we thought seeing Massabesic would be a good idea. Having been to many places and seen great lakes, I must confessed Massabesic paled in comparison. It is more like a walled waterbody, a reservoir of sort. But combined with the Livingstone and the surrounding landscape, Massabesic stood out on its own. We merely walked along... 更多
Nice in-town place for quick escape. Parks are nice, boating is great, nice hiking trails, and fishing can be a lot of fun. The place is 15 minutes away from anywhere in Manchester. The shoreline is mostly undeveloped and beautiful. Two maintained boat launches make launching convenient, and the lake has a 25 mph speed limit. One warning, however. The... 更多
Lake Massabesic, mostly located in the town of Auburn, is the water supply for the city of Manchester.

Well, it's a reservoir, not a lake and as such, no water contact with humans or pets is allowed. That means that launching a boat has to be done without contacting the water. Not being... 更多
Since I have lived in this area for over 20yrs, I could not even count how many times I have enjoyed this lovely spot. It is the city's water supply, so there is no bathing. You can put in a kayak though in the front pond area near Candia road. At the same location you can bike ride miles of... 更多
Great place to visit on any Spring, Summer or Fall day. Lots of places to walk, bike or hike. Old exempt railroad path makes it great for Mt Biking or walking you pet. Several places to launch a boat. Plenty of natural beauty. Tranquility at its beat.
Loved walking on the trails by the lake! Very quiet and relaxing. Great place to escape the city and its close by. Not over crowded and very accessible. My new favorite nature escape!
Lake Massabesic is a fine place to visit to in the Manchester area. Do you wish to burn a few calories while viewing or add some? This spot, address listed above, on the "front pond" of the lake has many trails to walk. The easiest one to access is from Candia Road in Manchester which leads to a traffic circle... 更多
