The roaring dam that forms Lake Cochituate will a big hit with the kids!

Lake Cochituate dam

The Cochituate Brook Reservation begins at the Reardon Park playground. Take a short walk through a wetland habitat and forested trails to see the large dam that forms Lake Cochituate.  There are sweeping views of the lake at the end of the reservation's trails.  You can extend your hike by crossing the bridge and continuing on to Snake Brook Trail, which wraps around the lake on the Natick side.  Mallard ducks, herons, many different fish and other wildlife can all be seen here regularly.

Plan B:

Head to the Natick Mall Children's Play Space for an indoors alternative.

Where to Eat Nearby:

There are many places to eat in Shopper's World, nearby on Route 9.
