Belgrade Village Green
The Belgrade Village Green was deeded to the Town in January 2020. Developed and donated by Lynn and Phyllis Matson, the Village Green was once the sight of a tee box on the golf course of the grand Belgrade Hotel, a popular summertime destination in the early 20th century. Located in Belgrade Lakes, the Village Green is conveniently located near many of the town’s most popular attractions. It features a gazebo (with electrical power), stone seating, bike racks and benches, and a small parking lot. The gazebo is available for public and private events; check the rentals page for more information.
Long Pond Beach
A short walk from the Village Green sits Long Pond Beach along Lakeshore Drive. The beach offers easy entry for swimmers and kayakers into the cool, clear waters of Long Pond in the summertime … and onto its frozen surface for skaters and ice fisherman in the winter. Picnic tables and a portable toilet are situated under the park’s lakeside pine trees.
On the northern end of Belgrade Lakes sits Peninsula Park, which juts out into Long Pond from the Village dam. It is a popular spot for anglers, picnickers, loon watchers, and those enjoying live music on Saturdays during Day’s Store’s summertime concert series.
Hayden Park sits alongside Messalonskee Stream, across from the Messalonskee Lake boat landing on Route 27 in the Belgrade Depot. It, too, offers a perfect place for fishing, picnicking and relaxing.
