Parks and open space provide fun, safe areas for residents to be active and can benefit people’s physical and mental health. Research shows that investing in open space also yields positive economic returns. According to the Trust for Public Land, every $1.00 invested in parks and open space in Massachusetts returns $4.00 in natural goods and services to the state's economy.
The Department of Planning and Community Development oversees a number of projects each year to improve Weymouth's parks and open space. Many of these projects are supported through state grants, Community Preservation funds, local meals tax revenue, and federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds.
