Atkinson Common is comprised of some twenty-one acres including both the historic park and garden on High Street and the recreational portion, Pioneer League Fields. The gardens frequently provide the backdrop for weddings, family gatherings, graduations, and various other events. The landscape, historic structures and commemorative monuments are well sought out by local artists. The baseball fields and tennis courts host various athletes and summer programs. The Civil War statue and Soldier and Sailors Tablets frequently host commemorative events held by local Veterans’ groups and aficionados. And the High Street entrance provides a striking public forum that is frequently utilized for political rallies and speeches.

Park open daily, sunrise to sunset. Please make reservations for your Individual or Corporate events by clicking here.
