Head to the shore, yet stay right here in Methuen! Forest Lake’s daily hours are 10am-7pm. Open to Methuen residents only, a season pass is $50 and a day pass costs $10. Pay at the gate and be prepared to show 2 proofs of residency in order to enter the beach area.
The splash pad at the Gill Avenue park is another way to beat the heat! It’s open 10am-7pm daily and it’s free.
For questions about either spot, contact the Methuen Rec Department: (978) 983-8590.
