Massasoit State Park covers more than 1200 acres with six lakes, numerous cranberry bogs, and trails that meander between the lakes, the wetlands, and the heavily wooded areas. The park is located in the southeast portion of the city of Taunton. There are four main trails – Massasoit, Lake Rico and Big Bearhole Pond, Massasoit Loop, and Adams Trail. Park hours are from sunrise to sunset, and there is free parking available. 

Activities at the park include camping, swimming, canoeing, mountain biking, hiking, and fishing. Hunting is also allowed; however, hunters should check with park rangers for details. There is also a boat ramp, playground, and trailer or RV hookups.

Watson Pond State Park is a smaller state park covering 10 acres with picnic areas on the beach, a bathhouse, a small pavilion, and a playground. It is open from late May until September from 10 am until 6 pm. Fishing and canoeing are allowed. There are several short trails to enjoy throughout the park.

Taunton Green

Taunton Green dates back to 1743, when it was used as a militia training area. There was also a meeting house. Today it is at the center of the old historic district of Taunton. The Green is the city’s holiday light display site, attracting visitors from around the area. Taunton gets its nickname, “The Christmas City,” from this attraction that continues to provide residents with a holiday event.

Providing Fire Damage Restoration Services in Taunton Residences

It is important to thoroughly clean all surfaces in homes, including contents and structural elements after a fire. When plastics burn, they produce chlorides that produce hydrochloric acid when combined with moisture. A common by-product of combustion is carbon dioxide, which produces carbonic acid when combined with moisture.

SERVPRO tests all surfaces before fire damage restoration begins in Taunton to determine the acidic nature of smoke residues. Once these surfaces are cleaned, they are retested to ensure no residual acid remains on the surface. Acids remaining on surfaces can:

  • Cause discoloration
  • Corrode surfaces
  • Cause long term smoke damage

Completely removing and testing for acids eliminates further deterioration.
