Owned By: Town of Plymouth

This 7-acre outdoor recreational complex on Plymouth Harbor features tennis and basketball courts, a softball field, a playground, a concession stand with restrooms (in season), a picnic area, and an unimproved launch for small boats. There is also a small pond on site. Stroller-friendly.


In 1930, the Stephens family donated this land to the town of Plymouth to be used for recreation. It had been a landfill from 1915 to 1927, and prior to that, a coastal marsh. The landfill was capped and leveled to provide appropriate space for the recreational facilities that exist there now.

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.
