The Sudbury Reservoir is a historic manmade body of water in MASSACHUSETTS. It is one of the oldest surviving dams in the state and is now a park managed by the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation.

Work on the Sudbury Reservoir started in 1878. It was one of the reservoirs created as a part of a system that were fed by the Sudbury River in order to supplement Lake Cochituate. It was actually created from 1894 to 1898.

Since the Sudbury Reservoir was created to supply drinking water, there are a good number of restrictions at the park, especially when it comes to getting contact with the water. This is why most of the activities offered at the park do not have much to do with the water. What visitors could do here at the most is enjoy shoreline fishing. Aside from these, folks can also go picnicking, bird watching, skiing, snowshoeing, and hiking at the site.
