Owned By: Town of Weymouth

Baseball complex with artificial turf and a paved walking trail. Also on site, and across the street, is the Weymouth War Memorial, which honors soldiers as far back as the French & Indian Wars.

Features

Named for Dr. Herbert and Annie Libby. Herbert was a longtime member of the Weymouth School Committee in the 1900s and served as the town’s sports physician for more than 30 years. Annie served on various town committees and is remembered for her philanthropy.

This is primarily a baseball facility, featuring a regulation-size field, bleachers, a concession building, and warm-up/batting cages. It is the home of the Weymouth High School Wildcats.

Along Middle Street at the outer edge of the field, and also across the road in front of the Abigail Adams School, stands the Weymouth War Memorial, an impressive brick structure with plaques listing Weymouth-based soldiers who lost their lives during numerous American conflicts, dating all the way back to the French & Indian Wars (1754-63).

Trail Description

A flat, 0.25-mile paved/concrete/brick pathway extends around the perimeter of Libby Field.

Habitats and Wildlife

A grassy/artificial turf field with a few birch and oak trees around its perimeter. The property lies within the watershed of the 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, just south of Grape Island and Slate Island.
