Multi-use park behind Tufts Library with two playgrounds, a picnic area, 0.6 miles of walking paths, plus a basketball court and a baseball/softball field.
This tree-lined park is a quiet oasis on the outskirts of Weymouth Landing. Updated in 2019, it features two playground areas — one for toddlers, and one for older children — and a small butterfly garden. A nature observation platform overlooks a small wetland.
A concrete/paved pathway zigzags in various directions within the park. Its total distance is 0.64 miles. Additional pedestrian access from Commercial Street, Franklin Street, and Front Street.
Habitats and Wildlife
This mostly-grassy park is dotted with maple, pine and elm trees. Close to Weymouth Landing, it is part of the Smelt Brook/Fore River watershed.
Smelt Brook and the Monatiquot River flow together to form the Fore River. The Fore River serves as the boundary line between the towns of Weymouth and Braintree. It flows for about 3 miles, into Quincy, where it meets Town River, and then flows for another 2 miles into Hingham Bay. In ints final few miles, the Fore River is nearly a mile wide in some places.
