Every morning that we wake up in our Cape Cod cottages and homes, we once again find ourselves in awe of the beauty that surrounds us—the beaches, the lighthouses, the gray waters of the Atlantic Ocean lapping at our shores, creating scenes that never tire. And just when you think we might begin to tire of the stunning landscapes outside our doors, we find places even more beautiful and our love affair with Cape Cod begins anew. Because we want you to fall as deeply in love with the Cape as we have, we’ve compiled this list of the most beautiful Pleasant Lake parks to help ensure you experience the best of what Pleasant Lake (a Harwich village) has to offer!
Hawksnest State Park, Harwich
Hawksnest may be our favorite park, even though it seems to offer the least in terms of activities. Featuring trails that lead to promise of adventures and surrounded by tall trees and three ponds, this quiet spot is a space with the most photo-ops. The peace that surrounds you is often punctuated with the mournful call of the loon, and if you’re quick, you can catch them in flight with your camera.
Thompson’s Field, Harwich
The most beautiful spot on Earth can look barren and sad when you’re feeling down, but it’s difficult to remain sad when you visit Thompson’s Field, an enchanting park that welcomes your devoted fur babies! The sight of a happy Golden Retriever racing down the trail ahead of its owner or an English bull terrier stubbornly refusing to walk another step will bring a smile to the most jaded of travelers—and the beauty of these moments are just begging to be photographed! The lush landscape changes with the seasons, but all the beauty pales in comparison to the love in the eyes of our loyal companions frolicking happily in Thompson’s Field.
Fisherman’s Landing, Brewster
Located just under four miles away from your Pleasant Lake vacation escape, Fisherman’s Landing is a charming park situated on the banks of Sheep’s Pond which offers a tranquil spot for fishing, swimming, or simply relaxing with a good book on a warm summer’s day. Surrounded by trees that create a private cove, this beautiful area is popular in the summer, so if you’re looking for an escape to solitude, be sure to visit this enchanting place during the off season.
