HOW TO GET THERE
Webb Memorial State Park
371 River St. North
Weymouth, MA 02191
There is a large parking area. This is a popular spot year-round, so there are usually quite a few people here, especially in the summer. The lot can fill up on a nice day, but we’ve never had a problem finding a spot.
TRAIL DESCRIPTION & MAP: This is a small park with a 1-mile loop trail paved with gravel. There might be a few muddy parts if it has rained recently, and there are couple of gentle slopes both uphill and downhill. Other than that, this trail is flat, easy to follow, and completely STROLLER FRIENDLY.
INFORMATION & TRAIL MAP: You can’t get lost here, so a trail map is not really necessary. Just follow the loop and you’ll end up back at the parking area. The view of Boston harbor and the skyline are stunning. At all times of the year, the salt air, sea grass, and spectacular views of the water are classic New England. There are several spots that would be perfect for a picnic in warmer months, including grassy areas near the entrance that have charcoal grills available for use. There’s also a pavilion that can be rented for group activities and public bathrooms that are usually pretty clean. A huge bonus when traveling with kids!
