River St., Weymouth
Located on Boston Harbor close to the Boston Harbor
Islands, Webb Memorial offers quiet enjoyment and vistas of the
harbor and Boston skyline. The park is a scenic peninsula that extends
nearly half a mile into Hingham Bay. Recreational activities include
fishing, picnicking and walking. A large
pavilion with grills is available for rent to organized groups from
May through October.
The two glacial hills and connecting lowland that
form Weymouth Neck and Webb Memorial have been sculpted by natural
and human forces for over 12,000 years. The area was used extensively
by Native Americans because of its wealth of shellfish, finfish
and wild fruits. European settlers used the area primarily for agriculture
until the end of the nineteenth century. Boats depart from nearby
Hewitt's Cove in Hingham to Boston Harbor Islands.
Webb Memorial is located just south of Boston.
