Location: Underwood Park is located on Rte. 88 (Foreside Road), about 0.1 mile south of Johnson Road and the Town Landing Market.  

Parking: There is a well-marked lot with 4 spaces and there is a gravel parking area along Foreside Road.
 
Description:  There is a children's playground here and a grassy play area. Trails run into private property along the borders of the Park (please respect the neighbors' properties). Proposed trails will connect with the Falmouth Nature Preserve trails and other trail easements. The trail crosses the large grassy area and goes into the woods at the rear of Underwood Park. Look for several large boulders placed to keep out motorized vehicles. There are several loops through young forests of beech, maple and pines, with many ferns in the understory.
 
Natural Features: There is an important endangered plant species on this site -- a sedge (caryx polymorpha). This plant was transplanted from a nearby development to the north-west edge of the park lands. Please stand at the top of the slope to observe these delicate plants from a distance.
 
Historical: The park was the site of Underwood School, which was located where the playground is today. The wooded area to the rear of the property was once mined for gravel.
