State Park: Birding, Hike, Picnic, Walk
The smallest park in the Massachusetts state forest and park system, Pilgrim Memorial is also the most heavily visited. Nearly one million people a year come from all over the world to visit the town where in 1620 Europeans first made a home in new England and to see Plymouth Rock where, tradition tells us, the passengers on the Mayflower first set foot in the New World. This simple glacial boulder on the shore of Plymouth Harbor has become a world famous symbol of the courage and faith of the men and women who founded the first New England colony.
