Whatever your summertime pleasure, you’ll find plenty of cooling spots in North Central Massachusetts. With its abundance of municipal, state and pri- vate parks and pools, this region is the perfect place to chill out when the tem- peratures rise. Where to Begin? The Massachusetts Department of Con- servation and Recreation manages a number of parks in the region, including several with great swimming spots — and many of them are universally accessible. Dunn State Park in Gardner has an ac- cessible beach on Dunn’s Pond, along with a visitor’s center, restrooms, trails and playground — everything you need for a family retreat from the summer’s heat. Lake Dennison Recreation Area in Winchendon boasts a family-friendly beach with plenty of shallow water for the kids to enjoy. This state park also offers 150 campsites and trails for biking and hiking, so if you’re looking for a great spot to enjoy the great outdoors 24/7, be sure to check the state website. But those are just the beginning. Con- sider these super cooling state park lo- cations: Crow Hill Pond at Leominster State Park; Pearl Hill Brook Pond in West Townsend; or Beaman Pond at Otter River State Park in Baldwinville.
