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

A walk around a waste water treatment plant?!?!? Well, it's got some great scenery ... in the course of the 2.5 mile walk you'll see wide open ocean; light houses; and the Boston skyline. There are plenty of places to stop to sit and enjoy the scenery and the sound of the windmills is kind of cool. NOW ... back... More

I try to do this walk with a friend every time I visit Winthrop. It has outstanding views of Boston along with great views on ocean side too. I have never picniced here but have seen people doing so during the warmer weather.
