Nice place to casually fish, hike and/or Kayak. Even picnic. The location is easy to get in and out of. Good place to visit when the weather is good.

Livingston appeals to ALL age groups from littles to the Golden Years. A great ice cream place is right across the street to top it off!! :)

The trails around Lake Massabesic offer great opportunities to get out and do some biking, hiking, or just walking.
