I have been going here for years with my entire family and enjoy it every time. There are shorter paths if you want to go for a short walk and longer paths if you want to go for a long run. There are beautiful views of the water and there was a new artwork that was recently put up that... More

There are short or long trails with views of Boston across the ocean. Almost like a mini-Arcadia. Be sure to venture the trails going off the beaten path. Worth every cent of entrance fee. Convenient location. Hikers, slow pacers, all types of trails in a beautiful ocean peninsula.

The South Shore is full of amazing and varied places, but all in a small area and so some things are hard to find. This is a unique spot, not beach, not forest, not farm.

We went there to walk by un sunny sunday morning. Parking is not huge don t arrive late you may queue quite long time before entering. Walk is great with not too many people and nice views of hull and of boston skyline (far) The 40 minuntes driving from Boston are worth it.

Went for an afternoon stroll with my wife and 5 year old. Beautiful landscape with a view of the Boston city skyline. My son enjoyed playing in the small beach area as well. Good spot if you have at least 2 hours to spent

Fair amount of history there. I believe it was the first spot picked to locate The UN head quarters, later moved to NY Designed by Frederick L.Olmstead

A great place to go for a walk or picnic. Scenic views of Boston and nearby islands. It can get very windy as it is right off the ocean, but otherwise a very nice place to walk.

My wife and I drove in from the Boston area, and it took us about an hour to get to World's End. It was around 11am, and the parking lot was already full. We got lucky, and only waited a few minutes before spots freed up and they let us park in their lot. For cost per person is $6,... More
