Amesbury Town Park
Other Ideas: Cochituate State Park; Boston Harbor Islands National Park Area; Arnold Arboretum; Walden Pond State Park; Rose Kennedy Greenway
On the far side is a large, new skateboard park (replacing the old tennis courts). It is fenced-in and far enough away from the play areas that it would be difficult, if not impossible, for a child to wander into it. Next to the skateboard park are baseball/softball diamonds, where local teams often meet to practice.
On the other side of the park is the playground. While the older, metal equipment has been left in place, an impressive array of new, clean, wood- and plastic structures is the focus of the playground. Including the old and the new equipment, the playground consists of tire-, infant- and regular swings; slides; a merry-go-round; 'diggers' and 'rockers' (set up on big, metal springs); and lots of tunnels, poles, ladders, and bridges that characterize modern playground structures.
This park is also a perfect place for taking a nature walk through the woods or feeding ducks in the pond.
- Parking spaces are very limited, so expect a short hike from your car. Also, the park can become quite crowded during 'peak hours,' such as in the evenings during baseball season.
