Habitats and Wildlife
This mostly-grassy park is surrounded by woodland, featuring oak, maple, cedar and back walnut trees, as well as pine. It lies within the watershed of Wharf Creek, a major tributary to the Green Harbor River. The Green Harbor River finds its source in springs and ponds in Duxbury. It twists and turns through Marshfield via large cranberry bog complex, the Green Harbor Golf Club, the Daniel Webster Wildlife Sanctuary, property owned by the Marshfield Municipal Airport, and Peter Igo Park, and empties into the Atlantic downstream in Green Harbor.
