Beautiful place to take the dog for a walk or just find a quiet spot and enjoy the view into Hingham Harbor and beyond towards the city of Boston, they have expanded the parking lot so that shouldn't be a problem, be aware that it does get crowded on the weekends when the weather is nice

This is a hidden gem. It is a great semi-private way to access Hingham harbor and surrounding marshlands. Great place to bring your dogs and a fishing pole. Most people that know about it are locals and buy annual memberships.

World's End is one of my favorite places on the south shore of Boston. If you're looking for a place to walk/run that has spectacular water views, check out the trails in World's End. It's my favorite place to run (and the big hill in the middle is a killer!). Many people like to walk or picnic in this beautiful... More

You will find great walking trails over varied terrain at World's End. The Trustees of the Reservations have done a great job in preserving this beautiful site. Supposedly it was once considered as the location for the United Nations or a nuclear power plant. No, absolutely no, to the United Nations, but there is still room for a nuclear power... More

Beautiful and serene place to visit. I actually stumbled upon it and had no idea it wasn't free to walk around, which seemed odd for an outdoor park. Be sure to bring cash with you if you want to visit and take a nature walk. I think it was six dollars. It was relatively quiet on a fall weekday and... More

I strongly recommend taking the time to stroll through World's End and learn about its amazing history -- first as a planned development (hundred+ years ago) and it was once even contemplated as a site for the United Nations (but Manhattan won).

My words don't do this "worlds end" justice. Not easy to find but if you can use a beautiful and peaceful walk. Make an effort to find your way.

This was intended to contain many elegant homes and was initied by Frederick Law Olmsted the famous landscape architect. For reasons unknown to me this never happened and this is now a reservation.

This is a great place to walk and picnic on the tolling fields and the wooded paths . You have access to the river for its beautiful views and the city in the distance. You may even find the opportunity to take a swim.

Great quiet place to walk with your dog, family, and friends. Better to do it mid week as the weekends get busy. Great Boston views.
