This small park features a 0.3-mile paved walking trail with numerous benches. A 0.1-mile connector trail links directly to Great Esker Park, where there is another 2 miles of paved trail, plus 4+ miles of unpaved trail.

Habitats and Wildlife

The grassy park is bordered on one side by a tall esker ridge (glacial deposit). There are oaks, cedars, maple trees and sumac along the perimeter. On the other side of the ridge is the Weymouth Back River, which rises from several ponds and swamps, including Whitman Pond in Weymouth. It flows for about 10 miles, and empties into the Atlantic Ocean at Hingham Bay, downstream of the park, and just south of Grape Island and Slate Island.
