Hunt Park

Hunt Park: Located on Marshall Street, just after the Eagles’ Nest bridge, Hunt Park was given to DRHS in 1962 by the Standish Shore Improvement Association, Inc. and was originally owned by Helen Hunt Phillips, and before her, Ruby O. Tuttle.

An attractive parcel of land with easy pull-off parking, it is an ideal spot for a picnic or as a starting point to exploration of Standish Shore. A warm thank you to the Rice family, for their help in the continued maintenance of this property.
