Governor Patrick Visits Peddock Islands

Governor Patrick yesterday visited Peddock Islands to tour improvements and celebrate Administration’s investment in the Harbor Islands.

The Commonwealth of Massachusetts purchased Peddocks Island in 1970. Since its acquisition, the state has been actively developing and improving the island as a historical and recreational resource.

In 2010, DCR worked with the Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) on a $375,000 dredging project along the Spectacle Island Marina, and $283,500 to upgrade the beams and floats at the marina. In 2013, DCR’s Office of Waterways worked with BHIA to complete a $242,000 project which created ADA accessible floats at Bumpkin, Grape, and Lovells Islands.

The Patrick Administration has made a historic investment of more than $370 million in land conservation focused on three goals: investing in urban parks, preserving working farms and forests and protecting large natural landscapes for habitat.
