|2021 General Information
Dundee Park is a wonderful resource for the residents of Windham, particularly those with small children. The park has an attractive beach and picnic area with outdoor grills located in a picturesque and unspoiled site along the Presumpscot River. The sheltered spot and calm water make it an ideal spot for young children to play and swim and for neighbors to meet and socialize. Basketball and volleyball courts are also on the premises.
Park managers reside on the park grounds and are supported by a staff of park attendants and community volunteers. Please say hello and introduce yourselves to them. Due to COVID19, lifeguard certification courses were not available throughout 2020, so there will be no lifeguard coverage at Dundee Park this summer and children must be supervised by their parents. We will be working to get interested candidates certified for the 2022 season. Experienced swimmers will enjoy the float for jumping and diving. For safety reasons, those wearing life jackets are not allowed to swim over their heads.
We are proud of our park and want to keep it beautiful and safe for all to enjoy! You can do your part by reading and obeying our rules. We also encourage you to let the staff know if you see any problems or have any suggestions. Your input is greatly appreciated in our continuing effort to improve Dundee Park.
There is a basketball court, volleyball court, fishing dock and a floating dock at Dundee Park. Bathrooms, soda machine and BBQ grills are available for visitors and there is no drinking water or concessions at Dundee so please provide your own.
This summer, a new playground will be added to Dundee Park for visitors!
