  • What a fabulous new park! We natives knew Deer Island as a prison and as a wastewater treatment facility. No more! Now it is a two mile walk with the most spectacular view of Boston Harbor, Winthrop, ...  more »
  • Surprising piece of nature at the end of Winthorp near Boston. Beautiful Boston skyline and on Logan Airport. Ideal for plane spotters. One of the natural areas that to compensate for the airport and take previous pollution. Hiking trails along the coast and scenic views.

  • Has a nice side walk for walking or running. Beach has a lot of smooth rocks, which were fun to try and skip on the ocean. Not sure I would go there for a day at the beach.

  • It's a sewage treatment plant, but don't let that deter you. It's landscaped with hills and cutbacks in the tradition of Olmsted and offers beautiful views of the ocean and harbor islands. Around the perimeter is about 2.8 miles. If you take every trail (including all cutbacks) there's about 6 miles of trails. There are water fountains and bathrooms by the employee entrance.
  • I came here specifically for fishing. I did see quite a few people fishing here as well. Went on a sunny Sunday morning and spent about 5 hrs here. Only saw one guy catching one fish. I personally wouldn't recommend it for fishing but might just be one bad experience. I might give it another try one day and change my review.
  • Quite and calm place to just sit around and think of nothing! Simply wonderful!
  • I love walking here. Despite being an extremely popular destination for tourists it never feels super crowded once you get on the trails.
  • Lovely park area close to Boston
