Located in the heart of Salem, Salem Common has a rich history as a public park that dates back to the city's roots. Once used as a location for military shooting practice, the park is now a popular spot for an early morning jog, evening stroll or midday picnic with the kids. Highlights include Washington Arch, the Salem Common gazebo, a war memorial and playground for children. The Salem Common Neighborhood Association works to preserve this neighborhood resource and historic site for the city.
