We've lived in the Boston area all our lives and this was our first visit to the Deer Island park. What a wonderful place. At times you feel like you are right in the harbor, surrounded by islands and boats. It is very nicely done, clean, safe and a great place to enjoy the city and it's harbor.

This isn't easy to get to if you're not a Boston native, but it's worth navigating the ever changing one way streets to get the view. We got there just before sunset and it was divine! It's quiet, surrounded by water and lots of pathways that are easy to walk or run and handicap accessible if needed. The power plant... More

Pretty view of Boston skyline! You will also see many airplanes taking off and landing to airport nearby. It is really nice place where you can also enjoy the view of water/beach. There is a harbor walk where you can walk/run around. It takes approximately 2.6 miles. It also has interesting history about waste plant to make sure to keep... More

The walk is beautiful. The scenery looking out into the ocean is so serene it is easy to find peace within. The children love to run around and it is a great place to walk your dog. The parking is limited though but it is worth going to.

This is a lovely walking area, so close to Boston. Lovely views. Lots of flat trails but lots of good hills if you want to get a bit more exercise walking, running, or biking. Wind is strong and cutting on a colder day, so bring wind protection. Yirrell Beach is right next door and also a nice walk. Did not... More

Great for walking or bike riding when the weather’s good. It gets windy, though, so be prepared for that. Superb views of Boston, and surrounding areas. I recommend biking over walking, only because it’s quite a distance going all the way round on foot, but there are plenty of places with benches where you can stop for the views, which... More

On the 2.5 mile walk around Deer Island there are great views of the Boston skyline and the harbor islands, and you can also see planes landing at Logan over the water. The walk has been very well laid out, with a wide path around the island and pleny of benches to rest, plus the odd portapotty. You will see... More

Beautiful ocean views, New England history, and the water treatment plant... I never thought much about the treatment plant until my last walk, I noticed what looked like a landfill and areas where a harsh chemical seems to be seeping through the ground. A great place to walk. Just not sure how often I would want to be exposed to... More

We walked from The Inn at Crystal Cove to Deer Park and back It is a nice walk, first looking at the lovely houses and views across the bay and then into the Park, following the well marked paths, and watching the birds, doing some people watching and (on the day we were there) enjoying the sun. It is a... More
