    Wollaston is home to a well known jogging/bicycling trail and a 1600s Native American campsite. It is neighbored by Caddy Park, a recreational area with a play area, lookout tower, & picnic tables. Read more

    Everyone says it's not safe to swim, but I have skinny dipped in this water. All I can say is that A) it's very cold & B) there are rocks... Lots of rocks. Have FUN in the non-poisonous muddy water!

    Great place for a run along the seawall with the view of Boston's skyline in the distance. Usually plenty of parking.

    It's good for walking. A lot of people hang out on the strip during the summer. Day and night. Wouldn't go swimming in the water though even when it's really hot! . It's mucky and gross.

    Tide goes out really far at low tide, but doesn't get too stinky. Get place to see boats.

    Finish up your run by sprinting on the last set of rocks to test your agility. Challenge your endurance by running on the rocks also prior to the last set.

    The water isn't deep enough to swim in. You need to go really far out (on jagged rocks, no less) to get even waist deep.

    From 1975 to 1995, FBI agent John Connolly met here with Boston's most notorious mobster, Winter Hill Gang leader Whitey Bulger, to discuss all sorts of fun stuff — like who got whacked. Read more

    Watch for the dog poop the owners don't pick up. A lot of irresponsible dog owners go there.
