Moseley WoodsA park for everyone to enjoy.


Overlooking the Merrimack River in historic Newburyport, MA, Moseley Woods is a 16-acre public park featuring hiking trails, picnic tables, a well-equipped playground and a spacious pavilion that is home to a summer concert series. A haven for nature lovers, dog walkers and children, the park is maintained by the Friends of Moseley Woods, a registered non-profit corporation established by members of the Moseley Woods Commission and the City of Newburyport.

The Commission was put in place by the City of Newburyport in 2004 after the capital improvement renovation of the park was completed.

The parks OPEN season is roughly April 15 to November 15. The actual dates are dependent upon weather and the spring maintenance schedule. During the off-season, the park is closed to vehicles, the water is shut off and the restroom is closed. Pedestrians are welcome year round.


Handicap Accessible The pavilion and restroom at the park are handicap accessible.
