Beautiful Elfin Lake accessed off Route 140W is open to the public throughout the summer and features a wonderful pavilion constructed through the generous donation from the David N. Baxter Fund in memory of Phyllis Bouley Baxter.
The recreation area on Meadow Street features basketball courts, ballfields, a playground and a tennis court. Both the lake and the ballfield are smoke-free.
A pedestrian bridge connects the recreation fields to Stone Meadow Park featuring scenic walking trails. Honey bee hives have been installed at Stone Meadow and can be viewed from a safe distance. A kayak and canoe launch into Otter Creek is located off Waldo Lane.
Hiking enthusiasts may access the Long Trail, the Appalachian Trail and the Robert T. Stafford White Rocks National Recreational Area for adventurous and scenic hikes.
