Small beach area just down from Archer's on the Pier. There are benches to sit on up top, or sit on the sand or rocks down near the water. The view is awesome.

We went to this beach/park for the primary reason of seeing the "Ridin' The Rails to Rockland" sculpture. Local resident Jay Sawyer created this sculpture from railroad ties collected from all over the state. It has been beautifully situated overlooking the bay.

Very small beach. Quiet. We were the only two on it. We had so much fun finding TONS of sea glass. We couldn't believe how much there was on such a little beach. It's right in downtown Rockland.

Stop here for lunch with your pup or take a walk. A nice walk to the beach or eat your lunch. Gorgeous views from the car or the beach. Picnic tables are available on nice days. Pet friendly.

Saw this beach when I was having lunch at Archers. It is little but there are so many interesting seashells! I must have walked back and forth a dozen times and kept finding new and interesting shells / rocks or glass. Quite a bit of...More
