Parks Projects

Improving Weymouth's parks, playgrounds, and open space

Local parks and playgrounds provide fun, safe areas for residents to be active outdoors and can benefit people’s physical and mental health. Research also shows that investing in open space yields positive economic returns. According to the Trust for Public Land, every $1 invested in parks and open space in Massachusetts returns $4 in natural goods and services to the state's economy.

The Department of Planning and Community Development works year round with residents and other Town departments to upgrade Weymouth’s parks, playgrounds, and other recreation areas. Click on the links below to see examples of past projects. Much of this work was supported by Community Preservation funds, Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds, and local meals tax revenue.
