This Park is the historic site of Gloucester’s first settlers in 1623. They set up fishing stages on this land. The Park is home to Half Moon and Cressy’s beaches, with access to a sand volleyball court, a beautiful new playground, a baseball field, a basketball court, and tennis courts. There are plenty of picnic tables and cooking areas (bring your own grill), a privately owned restaurant that is open to the public, an information center and bathrooms. Open from Memorial Day (late May) until Columbus Day (mid October).

Non-resident beach parking stickers are available online.
