West Quincy Neighborhood
Only 8 miles south of Boston, the West Quincy neighborhood is bordered by Quincy Center to the east, Wollaston to the north, South Quincy to the south and Milton and the Blue Hills Reservation to the west.
The 7,000-plus-acre Blue Hills Reservation boasts some of the finest natural beauty in the State of Massachusetts. The park's spectacular scenic views and challenging terrain attract serious hikers from the entire Boston area. Walkers and hikers from all levels of experience can choose from 125 miles of trails, which take them through the park's diverse environment that includes meadows, marshes, forests, swamps and even an Atlantic white cedar bog. Dogwood and lady's slipper are just a couple examples of the park's lovely vegetation. Animals that make their homes in the reservation include coyote, red fox, white-tailed deer, turkey vulture, wild turkey, copperhead and the endangered timber rattlesnake.
The reservation's easier hiking trails are ideal for families with young kids. They include the relatively-level 2.5-mile Wolcott and Border Path that winds among stately hemlocks and pines, the short .75-mile Houghton's Pond Loop that's especially attractive during the colorful fall season, the mostly-level 2-mile Dark Hollow Loop around the base of Tucker Hill, the 2-mile Wolcott Path Loop through hardwood forests and the 3-mile Braintree Pass Path that winds along stately hemlocks, slopes covered with mountain laurel and an Atlantic white cedar bog.
A moderately-challenging, yet relaxed and isolated path is the 3.75-mile Ponkapoag Pond trail winding around a large bog and through the reservation's marshlands.
Mountain bikers can also enjoy some of the reservation's trails that take the bikers in such areas as both the Little and Great Blue Hills, Houghton's Pond, Ponkapoag and Ponkapoag East, Flow Meadows and West Street. Bikers under sixteen must wear headgear, as required by state law.
Cross-country skiers are welcome to use the trails during the winter snow season, which usually lasts from mid-December to mid-March, and downhill skiers may use the Blue Hills Ski Area. Other activities to enjoy on the reservation include horseback riding on the hiking trails and rock climbing.
Houghton's Pond Recreation Area is an ideal spot for swimming, as there's an on-duty lifeguard for safety. Visitors can participate in other activities at Blue Hills Reservation, such as fishing, golfing, canoeing, kayaking and non-motorized boating. Facilities located in the reservation include a visitor center and restrooms. There are many educational attractions, as well, including a museum, a science center and the Great Blue Hill Meteorological Observatory, from which visitors can enjoy spectacular views of the Boston area. The oldest continuous weather-recording station in the nation, the observatory and its tower are listed in the National Registry of Historic Places.
Another popular neighborhood recreational spot is Kincaide Park, located across the street from Lincoln Hancock Elementary School. Named for Colonel Henry Kincaide, a successful Quincy businessman and Spanish-American War veteran, the lighted park features a tennis court, baseball, softball and soccer fields, street hockey and children's playground equipment.
