Located off of High Street in Amesbury, Lake Gardner is a small lake with a small, uncluttered beach that is perfect for toddlers and smaller children.
Parents can sit under trees and keep an eye on their children as they run around, confident that they can't run too far! The lake itself provides quite a few feet of wading-pool-deep water, also ideal for small children.
The beach was recently reopened after undergoing improvements in drainage, landscaping, repair to fixed structures, and various safety issues.
The beach is open from dawn to dusk, year-round. Access is off of High Street, on an unnamed street located about a half-mile from downtown Amesbury.
