Its a great place to take a mental break. Sit back and watch the sunset, climb some rocks, hike some trails.

There is a strange feel to the place where Graf artists and rock climbers co-exist.

Be careful around the remaining groundwater lakes, but we go there to relax.

I was born and raised in Quincy. My parents home was the last one on the street next to the Quarries. I learned to swim and dive there. Now most are filled in (for safety) But you can visit the old stone cutting sheds and see the high granite quarry walls. The biggest one the "railway Quarry" still has my name painted on the wall from 1962. There is a first class golf course and a very good restaurant at the highest point with fantastic views of Boston and Quincy Bay.

You can't beat a climbing place so close to the city. Good parking and a dog-friendly, park-like environment make this a really good place to spend a weekend afternoon. Pick up a guide book from a gym if you plan to climb.
