The contemporary playground features swings, slides, and climbing structures, with a rubber surface.

This land is within the region of the Wampanoag tribe. To learn more about our local tribes, we encourage you to interact with their members. The Mashpee Wampanoag and the Herring Pond Wampanoag both share information on their websites. 

Trail Description

Along the entrance road, and at the edges of the playing fields, look for simple trailheads. These lead to a network of a least a mile of well-tended forest trails. They are mostly flat, with some moderate elevation approaching Grassy West Pond (which you can view from a distance).

Habitats and Wildlife

This open, grassy park also features a 1-mile network of forest, with trails. Some trees and shrubs present here include: oak, pine, black walnut, maple, hemlock, pitch pine, blueberry, viburnum, and sweet pepper bush.

The waters here flow south to Crane Brook in South Carver. Crane Brook continues south and empties into the Weweantic River, which flows through Wareham to the Buzzards Bay estuary.
