General Information

Description - *Information Provided By Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation*

The park now re-connects area residents to the resources of their unique and delicate river estuary by offering picnic facilites, soccer fields, play areas, paths for walking, restored salt marsh, and extensive plantings of native trees and shrubs. The DCR's restoration of the formerly degraded, contaminated site has also benefitted area wildlife: black ducks, mergansers, teal, Snowy Egrets, and Great Blue Herons, have been spotted at the park since it opened in June, 2001. Future improvements to the park will add restrooms, a fishing pier, a ranger station, and a link to the DCR's bike path network.
