Quincy Shore Reservation
, run by the Mass. Dept. of Conservation and Recreation, includes Wollaston Beach
, Caddy Memorial Park, and Moswetuset Hummock. The 2.3 mile beach is popular for its jogging/bicycling trail and swimming. Caddy Park on the southern end of the beach has over 15 acres of fields and marsh as well as a play area, lookout tower and picnic tables. Moswetuset Hummock, on the beach's northern end, is a National Historic Site. Once a summer campsite of Native Americans during the 1600s, it is a mixture of woodland trails and open marshland. The site, which has a short loop trail, offers views of Quincy Bay and 144-acre Squantum Marsh. The Friends of Wollaston Beach [http://www.wollastonbeach.org
