David S. Lynch Memorial Park is situated on a point with views of the Atlantic Ocean to the East and Woodbury Cove to the west. Owned and maintained by the City of Beverly, it is the former site of the Robert and Marie Antoinette Evans estate. At one time U.S. President William Howard Taft summered on the property until he was asked by Mrs. Evans not to return due to the hubbub surrounding his visits. The site of his summer residence is now an elaborate Italianate Garden with a tea house. The Park also boasts a Carriage House, which is available for private rental along with greens, two beaches, children’s play structure and more.
