DPW-Parks, Grounds, and Beaches Division

The Parks, Grounds, and Beaches Division is responsible for the maintenance of all Town parks, beaches, and other Town properties, including mowing grass, fall leaf clean-up, and all general upkeep.

A note about our beaches:

Please note that as of May 2018, smoking of any type ( cigarettes, e-cigarettes, vaping, cigars, pipes, marijuana, etc...) is banned on all six municipally owned beaches.  The smoking ban covers Long Beach, Front Beach, Back Beach, Cape Hedge Beach, Old Garden Beach, and Pebble Beach.  

Please note that with the exception of certified service animals,  dogs are prohibited on these beaches during summer from June 1 through Sept 15.

A few of Rockport's beaches are equipped with restrooms:  Front Beach and Back Beach have restrooms; Cape Hedge Beach has (seasonally) a port-a-potty.
