Swimming Cochituate’s Middle Lake is a favorite pastime. During the summer months, certified lifeguards watch over the swimmers.

Lake Cochitutate provides ample Boating opportunities with its rentable boats and kayaks. One of the primary goals of the Friends of Cochituate State Park is to revamp the primary jetty to further exemplify Lake Cochituate’s fantastic resources.

Picnicking is a family favorite. People meet to barbeque on the provided grills and lounge at the picnic tables overlooking the lake. The Friends work to ensure that these park facilities are maintained and enhanced.

Hiking and Biking are popular year-round activites on the scenic Snake Brook Trail.
