The Marblehead Family Fund is a community based 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.

Current Project

Hobbs Playground

The Marblehead Family Fund has announced their newest project - Raising funds for a new Hobbs Playground. Located at Brook Road and Ware Lane, Hobbs has been a favorite of the youngest children with bucket seats for swinging and short slides. Many children use this playground while their sibling play T-ball and soccer on the adjacent fields. Unfortunately, the equipment has deteriorated over time.

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