  • Great place for a walk or bike ride along the Back Bay and the surrounding bluffs. Some areas are nicely restored but there will be plenty of noise from traffic and the nearby airport. Interpretive center is free and has some nice exhibits. Parking is free.

I'm glad there is a center for visitors to get information about the land and all the animals who live here as well as the history. Hopefully this place will stay in its place for a long time, because when it rains the plants are more vibrant than you've ever seen in your garden.
