Expansive, windswept views of downtown Boston, Winthrop, the Harbor Islands, and beyond. Long trails popular with runners, walkers, and bikers although it never seems crowded since this place is very large. You can get an up-close look at the city's high tech waste water treatment facility and the two large wind turbines that power the island. It's a circuitous drive through Winthrop to get there but it's worth it. Some of the trails have pretty good elevation with really great views. Note: the parking lot is small, so you may have to park on the street during the summer weekends.

I think Deer Island Park is the best place for children in order to enjoy their holiday. The place was really large and we can feel more security in this place. It never seems to be crowded because this place was really large. Please update more pictures of the place. hotel metropole beach home
