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.
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 to 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 forms the border between Hingham and Hull, and empties into Hingham Bay.
