General Information

Description - *Information Provided By Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation*

It provides an unusually rich and diverse habitat for both plants and animals including a number of threatened and endangered species. The estuarine portion of the Neponset River upstream of Granite Avenue is characterized by extensive tidal marshes. Granite bound for Boston from Quincy was transferred by early railroad to boats at a pier on the Milton Shore. This segment of the river offers interesting canoeing and nature study opportunities.

Attractions - The Reservation also offers other recreational and educational opportunities at Mohnihan Playground and the Martini Shell in Hyde Park, Ryan Playground in Mattapan and Ventura Street Playground in Dorchester. Kennedy Park in Mattapan is home to a community garden and the City Natives Nursery (see www.bostonnatural.org).

Recreation - Birding
Fishing
Hiking
Kayaking

Climate - Boston experiences a continental climate that is very common in New England, but with distinct maritime influences due to its position on the Atlantic Ocean. Summers are typically hot and humid, while winters are cold, windy and snowy.

Location - Boston, Milton
