Join Boston Family Outings for a walk around Deer Island in Winthrop (approx. distance 2 miles). The walk is mostly flat. Stroller accessible. Experience the spectacular views of Boston, the airport, and the Massachusetts Water Resource Authority (MWRA) wastewater treatment plant. This facility, the second largest in the United States, uses the same amount of electricity as more than 2,000 homes each year. Be fascinated with the rich history of the island: internment camp, prison, hospital.
Binoculars and drinks are recommended. We can use strollers and other child paraphernalia, but do bring warm clothing and wind and rain wear.
Leaders: Johanna Jung (leader) (firstname.lastname@example.org); Margarita Balmaceda (co-leader) (email@example.com).
Registration is required.
We will meet at 9:30 at the Deer Island parking lot and start walking at 9:45am. The parking is at the parking lot on Deer Island (near the MWRA gate). Deer Island is also accessible via the MBTA 712 Bus which connects to the Blue Line at the Orient Heigh
