Public Interest in Halibut Point State Park Grows

Fantastic turnout and participation at our Halibut Point State Park public input session with Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation Commissioner Leo Roy at Rockport Public Library. Halibut Point, on the tip of Cape Ann in Rockport, is a world renowned coastal park with beautiful landscapes, trails, history, and wonder.

Following up on state funding that I helped secure for the operations of the park I wanted the Commissioner to have an opportunity discuss the needs and future plans for the park including trail work, rehabilitation to the visitor’s center and museum, park information displays, and other opportunities to highlight the historic and unique attributes found only there.

The property, co-managed by the Trustees of Reservation, is one of the state’s most popular parks. A bird watching hot spot visitors can see the Babson Farm Quarry, which supplied granite for thousands of projects across New England, and a coastline that artists dream of.

The reservation is open year round.
