General Information

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

The two glacial hills and connecting lowland that form Weymouth Neck and Webb Memorial have been sculpted by natural and human forces for over 12,000 years. The area was used extensively by Native Americans because of its wealth of shellfish, finfish and wild fruits. European settlers used the area primarily for agriculture until the end of the nineteenth century. Boats depart from nearby Hewitt's Cove in Hingham to Boston Harbor Islands.

Attractions - The park is a scenic peninsula that extends nearly half a mile into Hingham Bay. Recreational activities include fishing, picnicking and walking. A large pavilion with grills is available for rent to organized groups from May through October.

Recreation - Accessible Restrooms
Canoeing
Picnicking
Scenic Viewing Area
Walking Trails

Climate - Boston experiences a continental climate that is very common in New England, but with distinct maritime influences due to its position on the Atlantic Ocean. Summers are typically hot and humid, while winters are cold, windy and snowy.

Location - Webb Memorial is located just south of Boston. From Boston: Rte. 3A south in Weymouth, left on Neck St.

Report: This place was the home of a 100 year old Phosphate Fertilizer Company, which contaminated the Weymouth Neck and Webb Park with LEAD, ARSENIC, RADIONUCLIDES, FLUORIDE, ETC.,ETC. So we believe this is not a good vacation spot, according to us.
