Explore Webb Memorial

Webb Memorial is a small peninsula extending into Hingham Bay, and is composed of three drumlins (small, teardrop-shaped hills created by glaciers) and a low marsh area. To get here, take your car.

From the park, you can see Grape and Slate Islands. It’s a great place to walk, with the added convenience of being reachable by car. This is a preferred locale for dog walkers. Tables and grills make it a perfect place for an island-view picnic. A large picnic pavilion is available by reservation for organized groups (May through October: call 781-740-1605 x205).

Once a site that housed NIKE missiles in underground silos, Webb Memorial is now parkland that’s available to all. There are several memorials, including one to the “Grape Island Alarm,” a skirmish over hay during the American Revolution.
