Great place to take a walk in the evening. I go here all the time with friends. If you love planes then you can watch them overhead landing at Logan airport.

The clams were good and fries were tasty. The atmosphere was wonderful with watching all the families swimmers and tourist. It was very noisy. It’s in the airport pattern. The food was no better than fine. Convenient is a good word.

Pleasant area, clean and great for watching airplanes landing. Great place for taking a walk, playing in the sand/water or playground, or just sitting and enjoying the day. Signs for no bikes allowed, but that didn’t seem to be enforced. Fort tours are ONLY on...More
