Blithewood Park is located on the corner of Blithewood Ave and Massasoit Road. This park features a state of the art playground, basketball court, baseball field, historic gazebo and ample on-site parking.
The park got an upgrade in 2014. This re-vamp included adding a new playground, fencing and accessible walkway upgrades to the park. The park's gazebo also saw extensive upgrades, including a new roof, repair of worn boards and a complete repainting.
Blithewood Park offers numerous sporting options to the sports fans of the family. Whether you like to play tennis, basketball or baseball, you'll be able to perfect your game in this beautiful park.
When you're tired from playing at the playground or need a break from your game on one of the courts, you'll find many shady and cool spots to unwind. One of the most notable spots is the white gazebo that was dedicated in 1994. A portion of the inscribed plaque reads, "To Life, To Love, To Song. Lovingly dedicated by family and friends to the memory of Christine Perry O'Mara."
