Some places to have fun in Fitchburg, Massachusetts, include the Putnam Street Lanes, Coggshall Park and Great Wolf Lodge. Putnam Street Lanes is an old-fashioned bowling alley. The venue has its own leagues and welcomes drop-in bowlers. Senior rates are available. Putnam specializes in birthday pizza parties, held in a special decorated party area. Even guests who don't bowl may stop in for a meal and watch one of the many tournaments held on-site.
The 212-acre Coggshall Park was a donation to the city made by Henry Coggshall in 1894. It sits next to a bird sanctuary that gives visitors more than 300 acres of open green space to explore. Trails lead through groves of trees and around Mirror Lake, which becomes a popular skating rink during the winter months. Leashed dogs are welcome in many areas of the park.
To get the most out of Great Wolf Lodge, visitors must book accommodations at the property. Day visitors are allowed access to all amenities except for the water park. This includes the popular MagiQuest, an interactive adventure game played with a magic wand, video screens and a great deal of imagination. Other fun activities include the Howl at the Moon Mini Golf, the Northern Lights Arcade, Lazer Frenzy and the Howlers Peak Ropes Course. Day visitors are welcome at the restaurants and spas.
