About Castle Island

Located on the shore of Boston Harbor, Castle Island is a public park that stands at the spot where a fortification was built in 1634 to defend what would become the city of Boston. Today, families can come and tour Fort Independence and take in the beautiful views of Boston Harbor. Edgar Allen Poe’s story the “Cask of Amontillado” was inspired by folklore surrounding the site, adding to the historical appeal of the destination. The entire park covers 22 acres and also includes a memorial to 19th century shipbuilder Donald McKay. Be sure to dress warm; the island is known for its high winds. There is a beach and a playground for kids. Free tours are also available, call for current schedule. Free parking.
