A big, open expanse of grass, walking paths, and a beach right on the shore of the harbor. The castle has tours throughout the day, and there is room to spread out and watch the boats set out to sea or play games on the...More
Great place to come with small kids to enjoy playground, watch ships, fly a kite, have a picnic, take tour of the fort, walk on the beach. Downside is the run down public restroom, a nightmare if you have small children.
Nice place to take a break. Walk in the sand and water or up the hill to see Fort independence or let the little ones play on the playground. Several statues to look at. Or get in some exercise or have a picnic. Multipurpose outdoor...More

First we ate at Sullivans-the owner took our order and was super funny and friendly. The crab cake sandwich was the best i have ever eaten, in Boston and in other states! There are pictures of the evolution of Sullivans on the wall.
My wife and I recently took a quick trip to Castle Island on a sunny Sunday morning. We had a very enjoyable time. We walked around historic Fort Independence and enjoyed the views of Boston airport and some of Boston Harbor. Many people were walking...More

It's always open to walk there. The restaurant (Sullivan's) is seasonal, usually closed December to March or so. Sometimes they lock the close in parking gate at night, but there's plenty of places to park nearby.
