Old Reservoir

Old Reservoir Has Closed For The Winter Season

The Lexington Recreation and Community Programs Department wants to remind all community members that the Old Reservoir facility is closed during the winter months. Community members will often enjoy the facility for skating or ice fishing at their own risk. As the weather and temperatures change, so does the thickness of the ice when frozen. If there is any question if the ice is frozen enough, please consider refraining from use for your own safety.

The Commonwealth of Massachusetts has provided helpful tips on safety and ice strength, please check out their webpage here

Some highlighted information to keep in mind if you are planning to go out on the ice:

• Make sure to let someone know where you are going and when you plan to be back

• It is recommended to go with at least one other person in case of emergency

• Make sure to have a cell phone in case of emergency

• If the ice is less than 2" thick, you should stay off

Thanks for your cooperation in helping to maintain everyone’s safety!

The Old Reservoir is located at 483 Marrett Road is a fresh water pond with a sandy beach. The facility has a bathhouse with a roped off swimming area. The space is also used by patrons to go fishing and used for non-motorized water crafts. There are some picnic tables to enjoy a lunch right outside the facility. The site is open to all residents and non-residents to enjoy during the summer season for swimming.
