Codfish Park Playground is among the best hangout spots for kids in Nantucket. It features an expansive play area and structures like swings and slides.
The playground is located at 4 Codfish Park Road in the Village of Sconset. It is accessible by foot, bike, or vehicle. There are bike racks on site and sufficient parking on the adjacent beach and in Sconset Village. However, driving on the beach is permissible only from 6 am to 10 pm unless otherwise specified.
The Codfish Park Playground features restrooms, rubberized pathways, a wheel-chair accessible picnic table, and handicapped parking.
You may bring along your pup to join in the fun. However, you must clean up after it. If you do not find any trash receptacle on site, the playground’s management requires that you take everything you brought with you. You will also need to watch and take full responsibility for your kid(s) and pet(s), as no lifeguards are on site.
If you want to grab a bite or refreshment, there are plenty of eateries in Sconset Village. The top recommendations include Claudette’s Sandwich Shop, Sconset Cafe, The Summer House Restaurant. Plenty of Nantucket Rentals are available if you want to spend the night in the Village.
Codfish Playground Park has not always been where it is now; it was on the beach. However, extreme erosion necessitated the need to relocate its play structures. Thanks to a generous property donation by the Lockhart Family in 1995, the playground was relocated inland. Major renovations were done courtesy of generous contributions made by several Sconset families. Currently, the playground is under the management of Nantucket Land Bank.
