Habitats and Wildlife
This grassy park is set in a mostly flat, open area, close to Route 139. Some pine and maple trees provide shade around the perimeter. The property drains into an unnamed stream which flows south through Hanover, passing beneath Broadway before flowing into the Indian Head River near the Hanover/Hanson town line.
The Indian Head River rises from the Drinkwater River and Factory Pond in West Hanover. It forms the boundary between Hanover and Hanson, and merges with Pembroke’s Herring Brook, a short distance downstream of Ludden’s Ford Park, to form the North River at a spot called The Crotch. The North River flows 12 miles through Pembroke, Hanover, Norwell, Marshfield and Scituate, eventually making its way to Massachusetts Bay and the Atlantic Ocean.
