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. In earlier times, this land was within the region of the Patuxet, members of the Wampanoag tribe, who inhabited the area around the Jones River now known as Duxbury, Kingston and Plymouth.
No trails, but ample space for walking around.
