Seaside Park, a portion of which was part of a town-owned farm known as Cow Fort, was laid out as a park in 1895. Its 33.7 acres consists of lighted tennis courts, a basketball court, baseball diamond, summer street hockey, winter sledding, exercise trails and a classic small-town grandstand. Seaside Park is located on Atlantic Avenue across from the Marblehead Police Station.
Basketball Court (Outdoor)
This waterfront park offers lots of open space with facilities for basketball, baseball, soccer, and tennis, as well as a fairly big field, a playground and a boat ramp.
This great little neighborhood park, is situated at on of the most picturesque spots in all of Gloucester. It offers fairly new playgorund equipment, out door basketball and baenches that line a walkway that runs along the waters edge. Sweeping views of outer Gloucester Harbor make this a great place to observe many kinds of boat traffic, Gloucester's Ten Pound Island and the mouth of the Annisquam River.
Pavilion Beach is a great family beach located directly next to this park. It's well maintained and a great safe place to take a swim - so don't forget the beach toys!
Eagle's Nest playground is accessible to the general public only when school is not in session at Essex Elementary school.
This playground has several structures where children can climb, as well as a maze of walkways. There is a jumping area, a boat that moves back and forth, swings and slides. There are tables for snacks and picnics, as well as a small pond nearby where children look for frogs.
Also known as Brown Park.This park is heavily-utilized during the Little League baseball season, but also provides other recreational opportunities throughout the year. Vittori Park is located on the corner of two busy streets, so safety can be a concern.
