Manomet Recreation Area

Plymouth Parks & Forestry: 508-830-4162, ext. 12116

Owned By: Town of Plymouth

7-acre town-owned recreation facility with 3 junior league baseball fields, a youth softball field, and a playground. The playground is relatively new (2022) and has rubber material underfoot, but it is not fully fenced in. Home of South Plymouth Little League. Directly adjacent to Indian Brook Conservation Area.


Playground is more suited to older children (ages 5+).

Part of a large tract of land acquired by the Town of Plymouth in 1980. Constructed as a recreation area in 2000 with funding from the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation (Urban Self Help Grant).

This land is within the region of the Wampanoag tribe, who in earlier times, maintained a fishing weir at the mouth of Bartlett’s Pond, nearby. The name Manomet has been interpreted to mean “bearing of a burden,” possibly referring to the baskets used by the Wampanoag on trails between their settlements at Patuxet (Plymouth) and Cape Cod. To learn more about our local tribes, we encourage you to interact with their members. The Mashpee Wampanoag tribe and the Herring Pond Wampanoag both share information on their websites. 

Trail Description

No trails, but check out the Indian Brook Conservation Area, immediately adjacent. You’ll find the trailhead behind the playground.
