Independence Park

Known as the birthplace of the U.S. Navy, Beverly’s Independence Park is a lovely little park that features a commemorative plaque and an old cannon, as well as ocean access. With its green space sloping down into a sandy beach, Independence Park is a great place to do anything, from playing Frisbee to simply sitting on a park bench and looking out at Beverly Harbor and its outlying islands. Those who enjoy living an active lifestyle will love Independence Park, as the park and its surrounding area is popular with joggers and bikers, and its beach is a popular spot for launching canoes and kayaks. Parking is limited to metered street spaces only, so plan accordingly.
