Also known as Pope Park, the 66-acre Pope John Paul II Reservation, once the site of a landfill, borders the Neponset River. Following restoration of the salt marsh area, the state Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) planted native shrubs and trees, which has resulted in several bird species returning to the park for their habitat. Bird watching is now a popular activity in the park, where visitors can view such species as great blue herons, snowy egrets and ducks. The walking and hiking trails are paved, making for relaxing bird watching. Enjoy a picnic in one of the picnic areas, and let the kids play on one of the playgrounds or enjoy a game of soccer on the field. Free on-site parking is available.
