Summer is right around the corner, and we invite you to visit the Adirondack’s top vacation destination: Lake George. Whether you are looking for the perfect beach, scenic hiking trails, picnic areas, or historic attractions, you can find it all at our Lake George parks. Stay at Surfside on the Lake, one of the few hotels in Lake George Village, and access summer fun at the parks just minutes from your hotel room!
Shepard Park is the most popular Lake George park in the heart of the Village. The park features something for everyone: beach access, a children’s playground, walking paths, and an amphitheater that hosts summer events.
Free Summer Entertainment at Shepard Park
Head to Shepard Park throughout the week and catch some free live entertainment! Events include Musical Mondays, Tribute Tuesdays, Art Project Concert Series Wednesdays, Thursday fireworks, and Fridays at the Lake Concert Series.
Charles R. Wood Park
Charles R. Wood Park is a 12.5-acre space located on the southern end of Lake George. Features include a children’s playground, skate park, interactive water area, and a walking trail. The most popular attraction here is the Festival Commons space, which hosts year-round community events. Common events happening at the park include live music, dance performances, farmers markets, craft fairs, car shows, and holiday festivals.
Lake George Battlefield Park
Head to Battlefield Park and learn about Lake George’s history as you explore the 35-acre park. This park was the site of the Battle of Lake George during the French and Indian War. Stroll past the ruins of Fort George, statues of important figures from the war, and memorial monuments. After discovering the historical attractions, relax with a picnic under the pavilion.
If you want a quiet beach to hang out at this summer, visit Usher Park. This is an excellent place for families since the water is shallow, and a lifeguard is usually on duty during the summer. Other amenities include playground equipment, a tennis court, a basketball court, and picnic tables.

The Lake George Recreation Park is a year-round center for outdoor fun! You can explore scenic hiking and mountain bike trails in the summer.
