Marina Bay’s location is truly unique in the Boston metropolitan area. It is geographically apart from surrounding neighborhoods and is bordered by the Neponset River and Dorchester Bay on three sides. Although close to Boston, many who visit it for the first time are surprised at its open spaces and its waterfront beauty. Many of its homes have an unobstructed perspective of the Boston skyline and Boston Harbor and its Islands. Marina Bay is located 7.7 miles south of Boston Common and 10.4 miles from Logan Airport in North Quincy, MA. Route 93 is easily accessible and there is access to public transportation via shuttle bus service. There is also seasonal ferry service to Boston. The entire area has well-maintained sidewalks.
The neighborhood has five condominium and townhouse associations, commercial offices that contain contract workspaces, an assisted living complex, a nursing home, two apartment complexes, several restaurants on and off the waterfront boardwalk, convenience stores and a 685 slip full-service marina. The community is unique in New England and remains relatively undiscovered.
Marina Point was the first major development in the area and has two nine story condominium towers.

What is now known as Marina Bay is the site that was occupied by the Bethlehem Steel Victory Destroyer Plant during WWI, which together with the Naval Air Station underscores the area’s naval and aviation military importance in both WWI and WWII. The Victory Destroyer Plant launched 35 US Navy Clemson Class destroyers between November 1918 and May 1920 and employed 8,000 in round the clock shifts during that time. The plant constructed a wooden bridge from Dorchester, the adjacent Boston community, over the Neponset River to Quincy for its employees wo lived in adjacent Boston neighborhoods. Of course, today the bridge is a multi-lane structure that offers access to Route 93 to Boston and points north.
Marina Bay also has a large state-owned parking lot that offers access to a ferry dock and Squantum Point Park that has paved pathways leading to the mouth of the Neponset River. The park was the site of Squantum Point Naval Air Station that was closed in 1953. The airfield site has a rich aviation history where America’s earliest aviators competed in the 1910’s at what was then the Harvard Aviation Field. It was the site of early aviation competition attended by the aviation luminaries of the day, as well as President Taft. The Naval Air Station trained pilots during WWII, including President George H. W. Bush and Joseph Kennedy. It is also the site where Ted Williams registered to join the Civilian Pilot Training Program during WWII. It served as a base for maritime patrol for US Navy and British Royal navy aviators who conducted anti-submarine operations over Massachusetts Bay and the Gulf of Maine. The adjacent Dennison Airport was a civilian facility, although was used by the navy for land-based aircraft. Amelia Erhardt was an incorporator of the Dennison Airport. There are several granite markers commemorating historically significant events that occurred at the site as well as a long walking path with exceptional views of the Boston skyline. The Neponset River estuary is a favorite site for bird watchers, as it is directly in the migratory bird path. A walk along the path around the abandoned runway section is a window on our early aviation and military history. It remains a well-kept secret and offers a peaceful and enriching space for all to enjoy.
Marina Bay’s proximity to Boston and Logan Airport, as well as its residential properties, open spaces, flat topography and views of Dorchester Bay and Boston Harbor make it a unique location in the Boston metropolitan area.
