Barre Falls Dam is located on the Ware River in the towns of Hubbardston, Barre, Rutland, and Oakham, Massachusetts, and is a part of a network of flood control dams on tributaries of the Connecticut River. This project was completed in 1958 at a cost of $2 million. This dam prevented more than $3 million in damages to downstream communities during the flood of 1987.

The recreational benefits are an "extra dividend" to the main purpose of this flood reduction project. There is something for everyone to enjoy - canoeing, picnicking, hunting, fishing, hiking, sightseeing, mountain bike riding, horseback riding, cross-country skiing, 18-hole disc golf, and wildlife observation.
