General Information

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

The park was originally used as a Naval airfield. It was also once the home of the Bethlehem Shipbuilding Corporation, which built destroyers for the Navy. The DCR developed the site as a waterfront park with financial support from The National Grid, while maintaining both its bird habitat and the traces of its aviation history.

Attractions - The park officially opened to the public in June, 2001, and it is now a popular spot to watch the birds and take in the spectacular views of the harbor.

Recreation - Birding
Fishing
Running
Canoeing
Inline skating
