Really pretty park right on the water with plenty of shade. Several of the main “pilgrim” attractions are here, as well as the fast ferry to P-town. Don’t miss Plymouth Rock!

Right beside Plymouth rock. This was a green space the kids could walk, run, play. July 2018 this was barricaded and not accessible.

Good view, easy access to the harbor, nicely maintained -- why not take a few minutes to stroll here if you are in Plymouth anyway?

Plymouth is a great place to visit. Visit the rock but don't expect too much. It is a rock with a date engraved on it! The town is worth the trip.

I was pretty excited to drop by Plymouth on my way home from Boston and made about a 40 minute detour to come by and had planned what I wanted to see for a while. Turns out half of the park and a good chunk...More
