About Dighton Rock State Park
Dighton Rock State Park offers the perfect setting for a picnic. You’ll find soft, grassy areas covered by shade trees by the Taunton River. You can also fish or canoe, or take a walk through the 85-acre park. Interested in local history? Visit the museum (by appointment only) to learn about the mysterious carvings in Dighton Rock.
From Dighton Rock State Park webpage

An 11-foot-high “glacial erratic” boulder known as Dighton Rock once rested on the shore of the Taunton River adjacent to this park. Covered with petroglyphs, carved designs of ancient and uncertain origin, the rock is now installed in a small museum. The museum (open by appointment) exhibits several explanations of the carvings, which range from Portuguese explorers to Native Americans.

The park, which covers 85 acres in the town of Berkley, is a popular local picnic spot because of its soft, grassy areas interspersed with mature shade trees.
