Bedford Lion's Park
Located on the shores of beautiful Bedford Basin is the Lions' Park, named after the local Lion's Club who were responsible for it's construction. This is a public park located in the center of Bedford on Shore Drive. The park is located next to the Bedford Yacht Club so it has great views of the boats moored there. The park has two heated outdoor pools that are open from July1- Aug. 31 each year. A yearly pass can be purchased for a very reasonable fee of around $60 (2005) or you can purchase a daily pass. Swim lessons are given here as well. The park also has a paved outdoor basketball court. This court is well known around metro for being used by some of the best players in the city. There is a good size play area for younger children with lots of well maintained play equipment. On Wednesday nights, in the summer, the Bedford Yacht Club holds sailing races and the boats race close to the park. --Click on images below to enlarge.
