Marshfield’s skate park located in Library Plaza. An 8,500 square foot facility, renovated in 2016.
Uncle Bud Skate Park, also known as the Marshfield Skate Park, was established in 2005 and fully renovated in 2016, thanks in part to Community Preservation funds. It is named for John “Uncle Bud” Nangle, who was very active in the community, especially in support of youth programs.
This land is within the region of the Massachuseuk (or Massachusett) and Wampanoag Native American tribes.
Habitats and Wildlife
A mostly concrete facility, with a small grassy area and a few maple trees. Located within the South River watershed.
The South River originates deep in Duxbury. Its source is in the Round Pond area, and from there it winds unobtrusively through the woods for several miles. Although one can view it from Route 3, and also from both the South River Bog and the Camp Wing Conservation Area, it remains a narrow and mostly un-navigable stream until just below Veterans Memorial Park. From there it flows through South River Park, behind the playground of South River School, and under the Willow Street and Francis Keville Bridges. Wider at that point, and navigable at most tides, its course winds through the marshes as it runs parallel to Route 139, all the way to Rexhame. From there the river turns northward. It flows for 3 miles between Humarock and the mainland to Fourth Cliff, where it joins the North River at its outlet to the sea.
