Woonasquatucket Reservoir is a 300-acre reservoir on the Woonasquatucket River. It is sometimes called Stillwater Reservoir and also Stump Pond from the days, now long past, when there were standing dead trees in the water from when the land was flooded to make the reservoir.
There are some houses near the shore, but overall the shoreline is surprisingly natural given its suburban setting. It is a large body of water so waves large enough to cause problems for canoes and kayaks can form on a windy day.
At the north end of the reservoir is Mowry Conservation Area, a beautiful natural area that includes walking trails and a very scenic section of the Woonasquatucket River.
Registration closes on Thursday, April 7.
