Here’s a great place for kids to get their first swimming hole experience. No long walk to get to the swimming hole and not sketchy at all, this spot is actually located within Green River Swimming and Recreation Park in Greenfield, MA. There’s a per person use fee ($8 for adults and $6 for kids), but you’ll also have access to bathrooms, a picnic area and even a large playground.
Basically, it’s a park but with a great swimming hole attached. If you feel like being extremely outdoorsy, the Riverside Community Bike Path, a paved bike trail that starts right in the park, will lead you on a short ride into downtown Greenfield.
Directions: Nash’s Mill Rd, Greenfield, MA 01301
