Coughlin Park Playground Equipment

After reviewing all playground equipment bids and structures available, the Parks Committee has chosen UltiPlay for the Coughlin Park Playground.

This foot print below shows the new layout with two play structures, a climbing web, four-seat seesaw, music center, and swings.

Parks Committee Update

The Winthrop Parks Committee has been hard at work since September 2012 renovating some of our town parks beginning with Pico Park and we are almost done with Pond Street Park!
Now, thanks to a state grant, Coughlin Park will be renovated by the end of 2014. The old playground equipment will be removed and new playground equipment installed. The tennis court will be resurfaced and the basketball court will be re-positioned to face East to West instead of North to South with the other half of the court to become a street hockey court. A bocce court will be placed close to where the old one was along with new fencing, picnic tables, benches, and a flag pole.
Anyone interested in donating any of the picnic tables, benches, the flag pole or purchasing bricks can contact the Parks Committee by emailing or visiting our website at You can also like us on Facebook.
