You can swim, kayak or canoe at Hopkinton State Park, where the vendor Boating in Boston also rents out stand-up paddle boards, pedal boats, windsurfing boards, rowboats, and (for season pass holders) sailboats.

With a spray park, water slide, and filtered pond, Springs Brook Park in Bedford is a good place to ride out a heat wave. There’s also a sandy beach, playground, and concession stand at the town-run recreation area.
