Jogging and Walking


There is no doubt about it... one of the things that makes Massena special is that we are a community of walkers, joggers and stroller pushers. For exercise, relaxing after a family meal or to socialize, you'll find many residents out and about on our village sidewalks and residential streets. 

John Story Trail - One of the favorite walking & jogging spots in Massena is the John Story Trail. The illuminated trail is 1.5 miles of  crushed-stone and encircles Massena High and Nightengale Elementary Schools property (that now includes a few strength training stations). Grab a friend and pick up the trail from the parking lots at either Nightengale or the High School; or, where Churchill, Sherwood or Nightengale overlap the school property. If you're more inclined to jogging on a track, you can also enjoy seasonal access to the track located on Massena High School's campus.

Follow the St. Lawrence - Richards Dike (next to the Massena Town Beach) and Whalen Park Trail (Route 131 in neighboring Louisville) offer gorgeous treks along the St. Lawrence River.

For more of a hike, take to the Massena Nature Center trails that wind through the Robert Moses State Park on Barnhart Island. Or, if less rugged terrain is your preference, join the St. Lawrence Centre Mall Walkers Club for your brisk walk, year-round.

Tennis and Basketball Courts


You'll find four tennis courts at Alcoa Field Recreation Park off of Woodlawn Avenue, as well as a basketball court. Tennis Courts are open Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays (Most Fridays) until 8pm. Tuesdays 8am - 3pm and Sundays 3pm - 8pm. 

Pickleball

Come join a growing group of players in the area. The Massena Arena will be hosting pickleball at the arena during non-ice months on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays at 9am. This is also played at our Pickleball Courts at ALCOA Field. Equipment will be available to use at the Massena Arena.

Outdoor Rinks


You'll also find 4 community outdoor rinks through the winter -- located at the annex next to the Arena, at Alcoa Recreation Field off of Woodlawn, next to the Danforth Place Park, and on Howard Street.

Snowshoeing, Cross Country Skiing, and Sledding


Snowshoeing and Cross Country Skiing treks are great exercise and many outdoor enthusiasts with their own equipment use the Richards Dike Trail.  For those needing free rentals, the Massena Nature Center trails that wind through the Robert Moses State Park on Barnhart Island are great for groomed runs.

Sledding hills are plentiful in Massena but the two most popular spots are the Hills at Massena's Springs Park and those in between the Massena Intake and Massena Town Beach.  Test your sledding skills at either of these great locations!
