Veterans Memorial Park is a ‘jewel’ in Barrington’s ‘necklace’ of green spaces. Join us to see the progress we've made in the restoration and improvements to your community park over the past two years. Walk a brand new trail! Learn about upcoming projects. Check out the new sign kiosks which includes quotes from and about veterans - both local and national. Park in the town/Y parking lot at the YMCA or in the Veterans Memorial Park parking lot at the end of the park access road that passes behind the YMCA. Meet at the benches overlooking the boat launch area.
More About Veterans Memorial Park
The 245-acre heavily wooded park borders historic and picturesque Brickyard Pond, the East Bay Bike Path and the Bayside YMCA at the end of West Street. It includes a picnic area, benches, grills, a baseball field and toilet facilities. Bikers, joggers and walkers can enjoy the views and wildlife from the bike path on the edge of the pond. Fishing is allowed in season. A dirt walking path that starts at the picnic area cuts through the grass and winds along the edge of the shallow pond, where you can easily launch canoes, kayaks, rowboats and even some sailboats. There is plenty of free parking available at the end of a gravel roadway that starts by the welcome sign at the ball field.
