Wakefield has two lakes, Crystal Lake and Lake Quannapowitt. Crystal Lake is used as a reservoir for some of the town's drinking water. Lake Quannapowitt is a popular setting for walkers, joggers, bikers, and in-line skaters off Route 128 in Middlesex County and is the primary source of the Saugus river. Long regarded as "Wakefield's greatest natural resource," Lake Quannapowitt covers an area of 247 acres (1.00 km2).
The town common of Wakefield is on the south shore of the lake. Probably the most well-known scene in the town is of its iconic bandstand on the town common, with Lake Quannapowitt in the background. It is the site of many recreational activities and events throughout the year. In 1991, a group of local citizens formed "The Friends of Lake Quannapowitt" to advocate for the lake and to educate the public about this natural resource. The group has also raised money for projects that benefit the lake and the surrounding areas. Events such as summer concerts and the Fourth of July festivities take place there.
Breakheart Reservation, located in Saugus, is also accessible from Wakefield.
