Quincy, Mass. Quarries

7:11 p.m. on July 3, 2005 (EDT)

Are there anymore quarries left in Quincy for swimming? My father used to dive 80 to 120 ft into the quarries as a kid and he took me and my brother to one in the late 70's when I was a kid. It was a blast. The water was like spring water. Please let me know if any still exist or if there are any in New England? Thank you

Quincy Quarries is a popular spot for Boston-area rock climbers...not sure if there's any swimming there, though. There are lots of swimmable quarries around New England, although they're generally on private property and swimming/jumping isn't always welcome. But it is fun!
