More About Ipswich River Park
This former farmland was slated for development in the 1990s until the town of North Reading acquired the property by eminent domain in 1992. It now boasts two miles of paved walking trails that line the Ipswich River and circle the park, which includes baseball and softball fields, skate park, basketball courts, tennis courts, street hockey rink, and soccer fields. A picnic area and gazebo greet visitors as they enter the park, and tables and benches are located along the trails throughout the park. A canoe launch also is available, with parking for boaters on Central Street. All pets must be leashed and all animal waste must be picked up and disposed of in a trash receptacle.
