Plymouth Parks & Forestry: 508-830-4162, ext. 12116

Owned By: Town of Plymouth

Large grassy park in North Plymouth with a small skate park, a basketball court, a street hockey rink, a contemporary play structure, swings, as well as a Veterans Memorial.


The park was established in 1925. The field is “dedicated to the memory and in honor of the men of Plymouth who lost their lives in the world war 1917-1918.”

The contemporary play structure has sections for older and younger children, with sand underfoot. It is not fenced-in.

The skate park, Plymside, is a modest DIY construction, all within the space of one former tennis court. Read about it here.

This land is within the region of the Patuxet Wampanoag tribe, who for centuries have inhabited the area around the Jones River now known as Duxbury, Kingston and Plymouth. To learn more about our local tribes, we encourage you to interact with their members. The Mashpee Wampanoag and the Herring Pond Wampanoag share information on their websites. 

Trail Description

A short paved concrete path provides access to the park from Court Street. There is also a concrete access ramp from the town parking area behind 318 Court Street, but neither path goes very deep into the park at this time.
