Pilgrim Memorial State Park, Plymouth

#3 of 10 in Parks in Plymouth
Pilgrim Memorial State Park comprises two monuments — Plymouth Rock and the National Monument to the Forefathers — in Plymouth, Massachusetts. Closely related to these memorials is the Myles Standish Monument State Reservation which can be seen across the Plymouth Bay in Duxbury, Massachusetts. Owned by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, these sites are managed by the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation.
Pilgrim Memorial State Park was created in 1920 to celebrate the 300th anniversary of the Pilgrim landing. Landfill was brought in and the shoreline changed, creating arms of land around Plymouth Rock. The portico designed by McKim, Mead and White was completed and other memorials donated and dedicated.

  • The rock is smaller then you think. Be warned! But it’s still cool to see. A park ranger is there to answer questions and give some narration. A mock version of the mayflower is also in the harbor although it was not there in our last visit because it was being refurbished. Nice trail along the river that many people walk and run on especially in the morning.
  • So historic! Beautiful and clean. Folk from all over. Living in Boston its crazy that I hadn't been in around 40 years!! I totally recommend taking a day trip down to Plymouth. The only minus was parking coulda been a nightmare. There is a large lot but even on a day that wasn't really crowded, the lot was full. We got lucky and found a meter spot. Great for families or a date!
