Hull Street Playground

Hingham Recreation: (781) 741-1464

Owned By: Town of Hingham

A small, fenced-in playground for younger children with wood chips and rubber surfacing underfoot, plus a large grassy field.


An 1800 square foot playground was constructed on this site in 2019. It is overseen by the Hingham Recreation Department. According to the Hingham Land Trust’s Parklands for the Public, the field out back occasionally floods and freezes in winter, creating an informal ice skating area. Next door to Hull Street Playground is the 10.5-acre Rockland Street/Tugmanug Lane conservation parcel, a mix of wetland and upland donated to Hingham Conservation by Sarah Lovett in 2012.

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

Habitats and Wildlife

The playground is situated in one corner of a large grassy field. Some pine, oak, and cedar trees provide moderate shade. The property lies within the watershed of Turkey Hill Run, a tributary to the Weir River.

Formed at the confluence of Crooked Meadow River and Fulling Mill Brook, the Weir River flows north through Hingham, with Tower Brook and Accord Brook joining it in its first mile. It gradually turns northeast and flows for another 1.4 miles, 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.
