Enjoy your Natick boating adventure!

Join us for a day of peaceful water exploration on the beautiful Lake Cochituate in Cochituate State Park. Nestled in the middle of busy Natick, Wayland, and Framingham, this family-friendly state park is perfect for relaxing on the sandy beach, cooling off with a swim, and, of course, heading out for a paddle on a kayak, canoe, or stand-up paddleboard.

Please take note that the park may close due to capacity limits and rental with Boating in Boston does not guarantee a parking spot in the parking area, so please plan accordingly. For park updates, please visit the DCR Park Alerts page.
