Who We Are

The Friends of Wompatuck State Park (FOW), an all volunteer, not for profit group, was incorporated in early 2006 for the purpose of educating the public about the park's uses and historical value as well as helping the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation preserve, maintain, and enhance the assets, history, and other features within the park. Keep up to date on what is happening with the FOW and also download past and present FOW. newsletters and meeting minutes by checking out our recent news!

About Wompatuck

Wompatuck State Park is located in Hingham, MA - just 35 minutes from downtown Boston. Rich in history, this land was originally the property of Indian chief Josiah Wompatuck who deeded the land to English Settlers in 1665. During WWII and the Korean War it served as an ammunitions depot for the U.S. military. Today it is a 3,526 acre park that extends from Hingham into the neighboring towns of Cohasset, Scituate, and Norwell.

For directions to the park or more information about Wompatuck State Park, visit the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation website.
