The creation and maintenance of playgrounds in Marblehead is independently funded through the work of the Marblehead Family Fund. MFF is a community -based organization created to improve Marblehead's playgrounds, parks, and open spaces. We also provide low-cost, family-focused events for our town's recreational spaces; however, our current mission is to raise funds to rebuild Hobbs Playground.

Current Project Goals

Hobbs Playground

Hobbs Playground, located at Brook Road and Ware Lane, has long been a favorite of the town's youngest children with bucket swings, short slides, and a merry-go-round. Built decades ago, the equipment has deteriorated over time. The current playground is also not accessible or inclusive for children of all abilities, overlooking the needs of a number of children in our community. Our new Hobbs Playground will be a place where differences disappear and children can share inclusive experiences with their peers.

The MFF is passionate about providing safe and inviting environments in Marblehead. We welcome donations of any amount towards a new playground!
