I absolutely love this park and have visited many, many times over the last 15 years. It's a beautiful walk with great views, dog friendly, and you have the option to sit on one of the many benches to just sit and enjoy the day. Unfortunately, they have a small parking lot and it fills up very quickly on the... More

This park has wonderful walking trails . The views are amazing, beautiful all through the year. Many flat trails for easier walking but hills for those looking for more of a workout. Awesome place to picnic.

Worlds End used to be a serene place to enjoy a natural setting but now since the Trustees have embarked on a massive PR campaign to promote the property it has become crowded and more like a suburban play park than a peaceful place to enjoy the natural beauty. Even the land itself is suffering from the constant trailblazers. They... More

I just came back from a two hour walk around some of the trails of World's End. Such amazing views!! There are many different walking trails - some more hilly than others, but there are plenty of benches and some picnic tables around so you can rest a bit, or just take in the scenery. There are beautiful views of... More

Its a better experience if you go off main trails go near water. Parking 6 bucks . Umm Bathrooms are portables. Try Borderlands state park in Canton ..

This spit of land is a wonderful combination of open areas, boulevards, rustic woods and fantastic views of Hull and the Boston skyline. We especially liked the art installation, which literally mirrored the surrounding land (the sculpture has mirrors) and echoed the distant skyline. A satisfying walk with very little effort.

Worlds End is a beautiful peaceful park. There is a charge to enter for non members. (6$ each) Members of the trustees for reservation go in free with member card. It's one if the most beautiful places on the south shore to walk and enjoy nature. The views of Hingham, Hull, Weymouth, Quincy and Boston skyline are spectacular. The foliage... More

World's End is the most beautiful piece of conservation land on Boston's South Shore. This Trustees of Reservations property consists of four hills (glacial drumlins) that overlook Hingham Harbor, Weir River. It also has a view of the Boston skyline. Frederick Law Olmsted and his landscape company designed the landscape and carriage paths for a development at the turn of... More
