Elm Brook Park offers plenty of activities for visitors of all ages. Many enjoy canoeing and kayaking on the lake and Contoocook River, and a boat ramp and accessible fishing dock are available at the park. Walleye, brook trout, sunfish and pickerel can be found in abundance in the lake, making it a popular place for anglers. A 1.5-mile interpretive trail winds through the park.
