Maynard Lake

Maynard Lake is a popular urban lake which is stocked regularly with Brook Trout and Rainbow Trout. Part of the appeal of this lake is that it can be a quiet oasis in the middle of a busy city. There is a park and beach at one end and a green belt with trail along one side. The other side is undeveloped shoreline adding to the serenity of the lake.
