Monks Park is a well-loved local spot located off of Shore Road in Pocasset. It is a place that has something for everyone, whether you want to soak up some sun, take a nature walk, watch the sunset, or even kayak or paddleboard in Phinney’s Harbor. This town-owned park and its neighbor, Little Bay Conservation Area, offer a network of trails through the forest and along the sandy shore, where you can also paddle, fish, search for crabs and quahogs, or simply sit and enjoy the water view.
Explore the train tracks, paths, or beach solo, with a leashed furry friend, or with loved ones. Monks Park is the perfect hidden getaway to make the most of the remaining summer days on the Cape. The sunsets are a photographers dream, which you can enjoy on one of their large benches hidden throughout the park.
You can begin your walk at Monks Park from one of two trailheads on Valley Bars Circle. Both will connect you to a quarter-mile loop trail that traverses the rolling woods. There is a launch down by the water for small boats, kayakas, and paddleboards. Take a scenic water adventure and catch views of Buzzards Bay in the distance.
This favorite local spot is a quaint getaway from the bustle of the rest of the world and will surely leave you feeling rejuvenated and connected to nature. If you are looking for your next summer day trip, Monks Park is the place to go!
