Wakefield Community Boating

The recent decision by the Town of Wakefield to entrust the operation of the boating concession at Lake Quannapowitt to the Boys & Girls Club of Stoneham and Wakefield is a welcome opportunity not only for residents and visitors to the community, but also for downtown businesses. Wakefield Main Streets is confident that the Boys & Girls Club’s reputation and its proven record as a community partner will encourage club supporters, families, and canoe and kayak-enthusiasts to visit the downtown, undoubtedly providing a boost to local businesses.

Wakefield Main Streets is looking forward to working with the community and its businesses to ensure a successful first year for this exciting venture with the Boys & Girls Club of Stoneham and Wakefield. This includes providing opportunities for businesses and the Town to promote the boating program, the Town and its programs, and the businesses themselves. As a nonprofit, Wakefield Main Streets intends to also partner with other nonprofits in a show of solidarity and support for this unique community-wide opportunity.

We encourage others to join Wakefield Main Streets in support of the Boys & Girls Club’s boating program. When doing so, we also ask that you take advantage of all that Wakefield has to offer – including its vibrant and thriving downtown.
