A 0.5-mile paved walking trail extends around the athletic fields. Directly adjacent to Bare Cove Park.


This land is within the region of the Massachuseuk (or Massachusett) Native American tribe.

Habitats and Wildlife

Grassy fields with a few trees around the perimeter, including pitch pine, oak, and birch. There is a small wetlands area immediately adjacent.

This property is within the watershed of the Weymouth Back River, which rises from several ponds and swamps, including Whitman Pond in Weymouth. It flows for about 10 miles, and empties into the Atlantic Ocean at Hingham Bay, downstream of the park, and just south of Grape Island and Slate Island.
