1896 Ocean St, Marshfield, MA 02050, USA
Owned By: Town of Marshfield
Very small green space in Marshfield’s busy downtown area. Located on the Rail Trail, a short walk from Keville Footbridge.
Established on the site of a defunct gas station in the middle of downtown Marshfield, this small but serene park was dedicated in June 2009. It honors Molly Fitzgerald, as well as all other loved ones who were lost too soon. The park is maintained by the Molly Fund and its team of volunteers. The organization hosts community events such as Stories in the Park (a reading program for young children), as well as pumpkin carving at Halloween, and a tree lighting ceremony during the holidays.
There is just 0.1 mile of trail here, but if you continue to the Rail Trail, immediately adjacent, you can walk for 3.2 additional miles across Marshfield. The Rail Trail links directly to Pratt Farm and Carolina Hill Reservation, where there are additional trail networks.
