Charming little spot for a picnic, watch the boats go by, fly a kite or play Frisbee. Usually not very crowded, not much traffic. Park your car and take a walk or a bike ride around the seaside neighborhood. If your in the area it's definitely worth the trip but I wouldn't drive an hour or more just to come... More

Quiet, pretty, worth a stop. Bring your cup of coffee, sit and listen to the wind and seagulls. Came in the morning on a cool September morn.

As a Mattapoisett resident, I am proud to see that Ned's Point is enjoyed by lots of folks from surrounding communities. With a great ocean view and several picnic areas, Ned's Point is a great, no-cost place for families to enjoy the ocean and relax

We found this place by accident a couple of years ago. We saw the lighthouse from another beach and followed coastal roads around looking for it. What a nice surprise when we found it. This park has plenty of tables and even a covered area to get out of the sun. While they don't sell food, the ice cream truck... More

Beautiful view, great place to talk with old friends, relax and remember.. the old days. It had not changed..we are able to touch our youth there...lighthouse, beautiful harbor, islands in distance, boat watching, sunning, picnicking and so far no charge to enjoy it all. A must for people who love the true New England.

A beautiful piece of local history. There is an historic marker that marks the site and gives some interesting facts about the area.

Ned's Point Lighthouse and Veterans Park is a small public space with a tiny beach frequented by sail boarders…heavily populated in the summer and weekends it is very crowded. Historic location. No food service at this location.

Ned's Point pokes into Buzzard's Bay, and would be worth a visit for the view alone. It's major attraction is steady wind that attracts wind-surfers from all over. There is an ample parking lot.

Ned's Point is a good place to bring the family. Many people bring a picnic with them and spend the day. There is a small beach for people to go swimming, windsurfing, and kayaking. There is a grassy area for families to enjoy flying kites, frisbee or toss a ball with the little ones. Many people fish off the rocks... More
