Located near Logan International Airport in East Boston, Belle Isle Marsh Reservation is the only remaining salt marsh in the city. Many species of fish and shellfish call this wetland home. Several species of birds also reside here, from shorebirds to snowy owls. Twenty-eight acres (11.3312 hectares) have been landscaped and include walking trails and an observation tower. The spectacular view allows you to watch the nearby plane traffic as well as Boston Harbor and the downtown skyline. Guided walks on salt marsh ecology and cultural history are also available. Open daily from 9a to dusk.
