Driftway Conservation Park

Driftway Conservation Park

This 334-acre Scituate Conservation property features a panoramic view of the Herring River and its salt marshes. The Town of Scituate purchased the land from the Boston Sand and Gravel Company. In the 1930s, Boston Sand and Gravel mined for the property for projects such as the construction of Logan International Airport. You can still see vestiges of the wharf the company constructed in order to transport sand via barge to Boston.

Walking trails, a fishing pier, a small trailered boat launching ramp, an open field, and picnic benches allow for public use of this popular site. Convenient access to the Driftway Multi-Purpose Path (bike trail). Launch your kayak, canoe, or paddleboard here and explore the Herring River and its marshes, but avoid the river mouth beyond The Spit.
