Seekonk is a town in Bristol County, Massachusetts, United States, on the Rhode Island border. It was incorporated in 1812 from the western half of Rehoboth. The population was 13,425 at the 2000 census.

Very few farms still exist in Seekonk. Developers have turned the farms into housing divisions and Seekonk is used largely as a suburban home community for people who work in the Rhode Island and Boston areas. It is now well known for its retail area along Route 6, which includes a movie multiplex, many different chain stores and restaurants, as well as the Seekonk Speedway, a "fast track" destination for NASCAR. Although there has been a great deal of building in Seekonk since the Wampanoags first lived here you can still see many of the "black" Canadian geese which give the town its name.

The town has three golf courses (Ledgemont, Pawtucket and Firefly) and one playground. Slater Memorial Park in Pawtucket lies just over the Seekonk line, next to Pawtucket Country Club. The Town lies within two watershed areas, the Ten Mile River Watershed and the Narragansett Bay Watershed.
