Holden Playgrounds & Parks

Dawson Recreation
Salisbury Street, Holden MA

A wonderful playground for toddlers through age 7! You’ll also find lighted tennis and basketball courts, soccer fields, and the Holden Pool (seasonal pass required for pool).

Kaitlyn E Stone Memorial Playground
2 Maple Street (behind the Town Hall) Holden

Lovingly constructed by Kaitlyn’s family and the community in Kaitlyn’s memory. Geared towards younger children. The First Congregational Nursery School children use this playground during the school year, during which time it is closed to the public. The days/times are posted at the entrance. We like going to the Gale Free Library when we plan our playground trip.  It is on the other side of the parking lot.
