The park has a plocie station and is government regulated, so it's very safe, although East Boston is a modest income blue-collar city. Who cares! This park rocks! It has boats for rent AND reaches itself outward in a pier-type formation over the water right across from the BOSTON SKYLINE. Looks the buildings look massive! It's free and sunny days it looks great..but its best at NIGHT!! The city looks so beautiful..it closes at 11 am. A GREAT off the beaten road tourist location!
It's a warm hazy day, but you still get a nice view of Boston as you head past Deer Island Light entering the Inner Harbor of Boston. Yup, the Deer Island light looks more light a street light than a lighthouse. This is the one I hear as I fall off to sleep at night .... "toooo, toooo" .....

Tea Party Ship & Museum, experience the drama
of the single most important event leading to the
American Revolution. Discover for yourself what
political and economic conditions caused the
Boston Tea Party and how it changed history forever!
This is Boston's World Trade Center. As the banner slogan says, 'Digital Has It Now.' But that was back in 1987. Today, Digital (DEC) no longer has it.
