Lake Williams Trail

Welcome to "Lake Williams"

Lake Williams is 113 acres of water and land in the heart of the City. The one mile long trail which runs through the shady woods near the lakeshore provides a wonderful walk with great lake views. The trail runs through young woodland and mature stands of trees, crosses wetlands on boardwalks and provides a view at the top of the hill. You are invited to walk or run and enjoy the nature the trail provides. You are encouraged to watch the birds that use this lake for feeding and especially during migration in spring and fall. However, because of the sensitive nature of Lake Williams, there is NO FISHING, NO PETS and NO WATER ACCESS. This will be strictly enforced.

This is watershed land managed by the Marlborough Department of Public Works (DPW) and monitored by both the DPW and Conservation Commission.
