Located in Quincy, MA, visitors can see the Boston skyline across the harbor and dozens of species of wild birds in the park. Originally used as a Naval airfield, it was also once home to the Bethlehem Shipbuilding Corporation, which built destroyers for the Navy. The Department of Conservation and Recreation developed the site as a waterfront park while maintaining both its bird habitat and the traces of its aviation history. The park officially opened to the public in June, 2001.
