Merrymount Park, Quincy’s largest and most utilized park, is 80 acres in size. It was donated to the City of Quincy in 1885 by Charles Francis Adams II, grandson of President John Quincy Adams. Adams procured his good friend Frederick Law Olmsted to help develop the park, but the town did not have the money for Olmsted to develop a full plan. In addition to recreational facilities, the park possesses wooded uplands with trails and acres of salt marsh.

Merrymount Park has the following facilities:

Veterans' Memorial Stadium: football field
Varsity Soccer Field: soccer field
Adams Field: finest amateur baseball field in New England
Coletta Field: regulation baseball field
Mitchell / McCoy Fields: two little league / softball diamonds
Collins Rest-a-While: children's playground
Fenno Street Courts: two basketball and two tennis courts with lights
Ruth Gordon Amphitheater: City's only outdoor amphitheater
Pageant Field: two little league fields and picnic facility
Ryan Boathouse: City's only boating and sailing facility
Richard J. Koch Park & Rec Complex: Home of the Park and Recreation Department
Upper Merrymount Formal Garden: memorial park and garden

Directly adjacent to Merrymount Park is Grossman Park, a 50-acre preserve of wetlands and upland area. The park was given to the City by the Grossman family in the 1960’s.
