Quincy RiverWalk, Neponset River Reservation
The Quincy RiverWalk now runs for 2 miles along the Neponset River Estuary, from the Gazebo at Adams Inn to Squantum Point in DCR’s Squantum Point Park. Both of these terminuses provide spectacular views of the estuary and, in the case of Squantum Point, of the City of Boston. Additions to the Quincy RiverWalk are still being planned.
The RiverWalk includes a natural beach behind the Boston Scientific facility on Cmdr Shea Blvd., from which canoes and kayaks may be launched and landed. Free parking is available a few hundred feet from the launch. The Quincy RiverWalk is directly connected via the Neponset Ave. Bridge sidewalk to Pope John Paul II Park and the Neponset Greenway trail in Dorchester, which are also part of the Neponset River Reservation.
