I would also recommend the Belle Isle Reservation in East Boston. It is right across the street from the Suffolk Downs T station. Belle Isle is a salt marsh which has been returned to its original state as part of the Boston Harbor cleanup. There is an observation tower situated in the middle of the reservation which will allow you to view all kinds of wildlife.
