Crescent Lake has evolved into a great park for Southington. People are taking advantage of the boat ramp to launch their boat, kayack, or canoe. They can fish or exercize. Another plus is to walk along the two trails around the lake.

This is a great place to hike along the trails, fish, canoe, etc. at all times of year. People ice fish in the winter and walking your family dog is very popular as well. There is a large parking lot that gets crowded on weekends...More

There are several hiking trails from which to choose. I have tried the green and the orange trails. The orange trail is longer and more difficult, but does provide some beautiful views. I have not been kayaking here, but it would be a perfect spot.
