Squantum Point Park is a state-owned, public recreation area located on the Squantum peninsula of Quincy, Massachusetts. Managed by the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation, the park occupies the site of the former Squantum Naval Air Station (all that remains of the military installation is 2,700 feet of runway). The park is associated with the development of the Neponset River Reservation.
