Squantum Point Park is a park located on the Squantum peninsula of Quincy, Massachusetts, at the site of the former Squantum Naval Air Station.[1] All that remains of the former air station is part of a runway which runs for 2,700 feet. The park is associated with the development of the Neponset River Reservation.[2]

Activities and amenities[edit]

The park provides views of the Boston skyline and opportunities for bird watching and fishing along the shoreline as well as paths for running and in-line skating.[1]
