Owned By: Town of Weymouth

Weymouth’s Julia Road Park is a town-owned property with a playground, a baseball field, a basketball court, and a 0.3-mile paved walking trail. It is directly adjacent to Great Esker Park.


Small playground with swings, slide, climbing structure, tire swing, seesaw, along with a large baseball field and a basketball court, all surrounded by a 0.3-mile paved walking trail. There is also a connector trail that links the baseball area, the playground, and Great Esker Park.

This land is within the region of the Massachusett (or Massachuseuk). To learn more about local Native American tribes, we encourage you to interact with their members. The Mattakeeset band of the Massachusett, and the Massachusett tribe at Ponkapoag, both share information on their websites. 

Trail Description

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’s 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.
