At around 15 acres, Magazine Beach is Cambridge’s second largest park and is situated right beside the beautiful Charles River. It also boasts a busy outdoor community pool, the Veterans Memorial Swimming Pool, and a bathhouse. There's a historic granite powder house, which is currently not in use, that was built in 1818 to store munitions and rifle magazines, giving the park its name. The pool and spray deck are open June through August, and are free for all.
