King’s Cove Park

82-90 Bridge St, Weymouth, MA 02191, USA

Owned By: Town of Weymouth

A small grassy park in North Weymouth, at the foot of the Fore River Bridge. Features a 0.25-mile paved walking trail and numerous benches, with views of King’s Cove, the Fore River, and the Fore River Bridge. Beach may be suitable for launching non-motorized boats. Due to its proximity to Route 3A, there is significant roadway noise. Located next to the Weymouth Compressor Station.


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

Trail Description

The paved trail begins across the driveway from the parking area. To the right, there is a short loop from which you can access the beach. To the left, the trail extends along the edge of the water for 0.25 miles, offering gorgeous views. At the northernmost tip of the property, you can see the Fore River Bridge (which is practically next-door).

Habitats and Wildlife

This grassy park has a few scattered pitch pine and cedar trees, as well as some sumac. It is located on King’s Cove, on the Fore River. Shellfishing is not permitted here, due to contamination.

The Fore River serves as the boundary line between the towns of Weymouth and Braintree. It flows for about 3 miles, into Quincy, where it meets Town River, and then flows for another 2 miles into Hingham Bay. In its final few miles, the Fore River is nearly a mile wide in some places. Follow the Fore River Watershed Association more information about the Monatiquot and Fore Rivers.
