In the fall of 1974, the Society’s Recreation Sub-committee installed heavy duty playground equipment on the land at the corner of Nobscussett and New Boston Road. Volunteers began the playground project in the spring and finished construction in the fall. This playground has become part of Dennis culture; parents, grandparents, and of course children can be seen playing ball, swinging, and just having fun all year round in this friendly park.
The corner of Nobscussett Road and Route 6A was developed into a pocket park in 2002 after the town of Dennis purchased the property, which was a former gas station and auto repair shop.
The park project was piloted by a volunteer committee which created the architectural plan, coordinated the scope of work, and managed contributions and volunteers. Although the park is town owned, the Society maintains the property. The flower gardens are planted annually by the Village Garden Club of Dennis.
