Access to a beach. Has a play area and a new splash pad. The park is at the end of the town but worth a little walk to let the kiddos let off some steam.

At the North end of Nelson Park is an inspirational walk along the shore, by a marsh, and through the trees. The round trip walk is about a mile and the stones along the way are very inspirational.

This is a very nice beach. There is limited parking but I enjoy going here. Not far from Plymouth Center.

Great place to take the kids and relax. You have the ocean, splash park and playground all in one. They even have restrooms and a concession stand.

Our two-year old loved the "pocket" swings; felt independently free, laughed wildly with each push. Her introduction to the ocean in a simple setting with other youngsters frolicking nearby was a delight. The grounds are very well cared for.

This is a small park, and it's great for all ages. We stopped for lunch because there were picnic tables both in the sun and shade. After lunch, we strolled down to the beach to take in the views. It is small, but a great...More

One of my favorite spots to go anytime of the year just to sit and admire the scenery. Of course, it is best in the summer especially with children as they have a splash pad for them. Has a snack shack and places to sit....More

Yes it is. The beach has no waves and the bathrooms are very accessible. The area is small with shade trees too. The beach is a bit rocky so you do need water shoes. Because the parking lot is small the beach is not crowded... More
