Fairbanks Park is a complex of sports fields for baseball and soccer located off Rustcraft Road in Dedham, MA. Any use by organized groups requires a town permit, however as a nice place to hang out or kick a ball around with a few friends it works out fairly well. There is also some swampland surrounding it with a couple paths leaving from gaps in the fences surrounding this park, however with all of bugs and standing water that can be down there I wouldn’t bother leaving the main area.
Facilities, Fees and other information: There are restrooms and a concession stand that are open during larger games and special events only. There aren’t any parking fees to use the park though there might be a fee to get a permit for a larger group to use it.
Directions: Access to this complex of fields is easy. Take I-95/Route 128 to either exit 14 (East St.) and take a left onto Rustcraft Road right after going through the rotary or take exit 15A and then taking a right at your first light onto Elm St. (which turns into Rustcraft Road). For those of you using a GPS device the address for the office building across the street should get you to the correct spot:
