Long Description:
In North Attleborough, within Bristol County, and the World War I Memorial Park and Zoo, is Watery Hill, also known as Sunrise Hill, which is the tallest point in that county.

At 390 feet (118 m), I'm less impressed with how high the elevation is than with how flat the entire county is. The point is near the northern border of the county. The peak is along the road within the park - there is a parking lot there. A fire tower is also located there. On the tower is a plaque stating the elevation of the tower as 470 feet.

This hill at one time had a ski slope - as proclaimed by another plaque, situated in a circle within the parking lot.

Though the ski slope is no longer active, there is plenty to do here at the park. There is a small petting zoo, a couple playgrounds, some hiking trails, and picnic areas. It is run by North Attleborough, and there is no charge for access. The park entrance is off Elmwood Street, which is also Mass. Route 106.
