Bicentennial Park in Rockland features a 0.25-mile asphalt running track, soccer fields, picnic tables, and a playground. This 7.9-acre property is stroller-friendly.


Very close to the Rockland Rail Trail and several public schools, this small park features a playground and a 0.25-mile running track. It is located on Lower Reed Street, across from the Memorial Park Elementary School. Bicycles, scooters, skateboards, roller-skates, and motorized vehicles are not permitted.

This land is within the region of the Massachusett (or Massachuseuk). To learn more about local Native American tribes, we encourage you to interact with their members. The Mattakeeset band of the Massachusett, and the Massachusett tribe at Ponkapoag, both share information on their websites.

Trail Description

Standard size (0.25-mile) asphalt track, in good condition.

Habitats and Wildlife

The park is primarily grass and asphalt, bordered by a woodland comprised mostly of maple and oak trees.

Like most of Rockland, the land here drains to French’s Stream, which flows into the Drinkwater River. The Drinkwater flows to the Indian Head River, a major tributary to the North River.
