Went there for the playground with my 2 year old. Playground is a short walk from the parking lot. Enjoyed the afternoon sun and planes landing st Logan.

“Nice greenspace near the city”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

A good place to walk at the water near the city. The old fort has its moments too. Many dogs when I visited.

“Fun Family Spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

We have been to Castle Island several times and have taken the tour once. Our younger children love seeing the planes come in and out and our whole family enjoyed the tour - interesting, historical and with great views of of the city! Best of all, this is free and a real Boston landmark.

“Fun for Everyone!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

There are playgrounds for kids, water for swimming, romantic strolls for couples. You can see the planes landing at Logan (they fly right overhead). This trip is perfect for us when we need a couple hours to entertain the kids. We go to the playground, walk around the fort, look at planes, and everyone is happy! It's also right near historic South Boston if you are up for walking!
