Wompatuck Playground Project

Despite being one of the most frequently visited family destinations on the south shore, Wompatuck does not have a playground. The Friends of Wompatuck has identified this as an important feature and has started a program to work with the DCR and other partners to ensure that one gets built.

Bicycle Repair Stations
With the addition of a second bike repair station, Womptuck now has two such stations: one at the Visitor center and one at the campground entrance (contact station). Here you can pump your tires and perform basic repairs and maintenance using a range of tools. These stations were funded by the Friends of Wompatuck.

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.
