This large, fenced-in playground is located behind the Paul Pratt Memorial Library in Cohasset, right beside the headquarters of the Cohasset Recreation Department. It includes a large climbing structure for older children, a smaller climbing structure for younger children, plus a rock wall, slides, swings, a rope ladder, a sandbox, and numerous other fun features, plus wood chips underfoot. There is also a basketball court on site.



The MBTA Commuter Rail train tracks are very close-by. Train enthusiasts may enjoy watching them pass. Also of note: this property does not offer much shade.
