A precious gift!

Holmes Field is a beautiful field, so "virgin". It was given to the Town of Plymouth with stipulations Not to sell or build on it. Wonderful view.

This is a field overlooking Plymouth Harbor to the east, and the Monument to the Forefathers to the west. There are no facilities, but it's a fine place for a walk or a picnic, and especially in the summer to see butterflies, grasshoppers, and other "faeries".

Well maintained track of land overlooking the Plymouth / Kingston inner harbor and beyond. High grasses contain lots of ticks so Caution!

Take a walk along the bike/walking path that meanders through the trees with ocean views along the way. Follow path towards Plymouth waterfront and you will end at Nelson Beach Park. Holmes field is great place to fly a kite, play frisbee with your dog. wear bug spray and check yourself for tics afterward. Nice nature walk
