Hingham Community Playground

Hingham Recreation: (781) 741-1464

Owned By: Town of Hingham

Large fenced-in playground with a variety of play structures for toddlers and elementary-age children. Includes swings, a sandbox, a slide, shade trees, benches, picnic tables and much more. Sand and wood chips underfoot. Directly adjacent to Haley Field and the Hingham Town Hall Recreation Area.



The original playground was built in 2000. In 2008, Scott and Jennifer Reed donated 3.5 acres between Burr and Playground Roads to extend the area.

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

Habitats and Wildlife

The park has several shade-bearing trees, including maples, and pine. It is surrounded by grassy playing fields.

The waters here flow to Tower Brook, which joins with Fulling Mill Brook and Crooked Meadow River to form the Weir River. The Weir River flows through Hingham, through Weir River Farm and eventually into Foundry Pond. The Weir River Estuary, designated by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts as an Area of Critical Concern, begins just below the manmade dam at the pond. The mile-wide estuary — with numerous acres of undisturbed salt marsh — forms the border between Hingham and Hull, and empties into Hingham Bay. For more information about the Weir River, follow the Weir River Watershed Association.
