This is the only open play area in a dense residential neighborhood. This is the natural pedestrian route to the high school. It is also adjacent to a large tract of wooded conservation land. The area has great natural beauty and wildlife that inhabit the surrounding woods and small pond located in the park.. New playground equipment was installed in 1998; this equipment was purchased and installed with a combination of City and neighborhood contributions. The pond is not suitable for swimming. The wooded areas have some informal trails, one of which leads into the Beverly Golf and Tennis Club, a publicly owned recreational facility.
