Although Lowell may be best known for its urban amenities and cultural attractions, the City provides an abundance of recreational opportunities to satisfy everyone from the weekend warriors to the rugged outdoorsmen.

Explore Lowell’s National Historic Park, offering self or guided walking tours of key City landmarks, in addition to outdoor activities.  In warmer months, take a canal boat tour to experience Lowell’s historic waterways, or for the more adventurous, try white water rafting or rowing the Merrimack River. Watch the video below!

The Riverwalk, easily accessible from Downtown, is the perfect spot for a casual stroll or afternoon jog. If you’re ready to break out your hiking boots, or hop on your bike, the Lowell Dracut Tyngsboro State Forest offers 1,140 acres and miles of trails to explore.
