Our new plan will divide the playground into two parts, similar to the current design.  One side will be for the toddlers and younger children, and the other side will provide more physically challenging equipment for our older children.  There will also be several shaded areas incorporated in the design.  The playground will be wheelchair accessible with a long ramp to the larger structure. There will also be a new swing set for older children as well as a handicap accessible swing.

The Marblehead Family Fund is a community organization created to improve Marblehead’s playgrounds, parks, and open spaces.  Our mission is to provide low-cost, family-focused events to raise funds for Marblehead’s recreational spaces.

Support a new Devereux Beach Playground!

We have unveiled the next project that is underway in one of Marblehead’s most popular open spaces: Devereux Beach! Yes, the playground is in poor shape suffering corrosion and rust and many many years of wear and tear. The Marblehead Family Fund and the Marblehead Parks and Recreation Department are teaming together to improve Marblehead's playgrounds. Below are the proposed plans for a two-part play structure that the MFF hopes to make into a reality by Summer of 2014 with generous donations from the community. Donations are tax deductible. Previous projects have been Bud Orne Park play structure, a telescope at Fort Sewell, SeaSide Park play structure, Hobbs Playground play structure, and the latest completed project at "Header's Haven" otherwise known as Gerry Playground.

Drawn to an impromptu gathering at Devereux Beach by a Facebook message, youngsters and their parents got to see designs for a new playground, for which the Marblehead Family Fund is trying to raise $135,000.
