North Weymouth’s George Lane Beach is located on a peninsula between the Fore and Back Rivers. It offers a large parking area and restrooms for residents and non-residents, as well as a small playground and a basketball court. Directly adjacent to the Joseph Carven Boat Ramp. Also nearby, Wessagussett Beach, just a short walk southwest, along the coastline.


Also known as Weymouth’s “New Beach.” The parking lot requires a permit or a fee from Memorial Day through Columbus/Indigenous Peoples Day. The beach and restrooms are across the street from the parking area.

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. 

Follow the Fore River Watershed Association more information about the Monatiquot and Fore Rivers. Follow the Back River Watershed Association for more information about the Weymouth Back River.

Habitats and Wildlife

George Lane Beach is located on a peninsula between the Fore River and the Back River. Seagulls love it!

The Fore River serves as the boundary line between the towns of Weymouth and Braintree. It flows for about 3 miles, into Quincy, where it meets Town River, and then flows for another 2 miles into Hingham Bay. In its final few miles, the Fore River is nearly a mile wide in some places.

The Weymouth Back River rises from several ponds and swamps, including Whitman’s Pond in Weymouth. It flows for about 10 miles, and empties into the Atlantic Ocean at Hingham Bay, just south of Grape Island and Slate Island.
