Located in the town of Hampstead, the small community of Baldwin began as a center of port activity and recreation for the town that later grew into a residential hamlet with its own unique identity. The legacy of this area, once home to the ever-popular Nunley's Amusement Park that closed its doors in 1995, continues today in outstanding recreational amenities. In fact, the historic attraction of Nunley's Carousel has been returned to Baldwin as part of the community's proud past. This stunning 1912 carousel that delighted generations of South Shore residents and visitors since 1939 is now at home in the beautiful waterfront facility of Baldwin Park. Other attractions in this centerpiece of the community include baseball fields, playgrounds, a new skate park, tennis courts, handball and basketball courts, and a roller hockey rink. The community has garnered many awards over the years for its exemplary services, environmental awareness, and commitment to historic preservation.
