The Violette Park is a 0.3 acre peaceful tract of land on the bank of the Mattapoisett River, accessed by a tree-shaded, grassy path off of Acushnet Road. This parcel was gifted to the Mattapoisett Land Trust from Paul and Diana Violette of Mattapoisett in 1976. The Violette family donated the land to commemorate their fond memories of swimming, playing, and sunbathing in the river as children.

The Violette Park has a memorial bench looking out on the river. It is a nice quiet place to watch the river and enjoy the view.

Access to Violette is by foot or bicycle only.
