Small grassy park on a hillside, with a flagpole, memorials, walkways, and benches. A short walk from downtown Plymouth. Just down the street from Sirrico Memorial Playground.


According to See Plymouth, “Plymouth’s Training Green is one of the oldest continuously used parks in the country. This ornamental park was designated as ‘a perpetual common or training place’ in 1711, when the town designated it as the official Training Green, and it remained a muster field into the 19th century.

The local militia trained here for many years. The design for the walks and perimeter curbing was done in 1889 by the well-known landscape architect, Frederick Law Olmstead. The Civil War Monument, erected in 1869 is dedicated to the soldiers and sailors of Plymouth who lost their lives in both the Civil War and the War of 1812.”

This land is within the region of the Patuxet Wampanoag. 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.
