Lifeguards raking Malibu Beach 1988




Dorchester Illustration no. 2143

Lifeguards George MacMasters and Karen Hartley raking Malibu Beach 7-29-1988. They said it was the worst ever - they found trash, dead rats, fish, pigeons, eels, etc. Photograph Arthur Pollock.

The following currently appears on the Boston Harborwalk website:
Malibu and Savin Hill Beaches are great sandy spots for summer sunbathing. Substantial upgrades include a new ADA-compliant promenade along the beach, providing superb views of the Harbor and access to a wide section of the waterfront. A new playground, new sand, new lighting and additional landscaping add to the atmosphere at these beaches. Malibu Beach offers protected swimming and a bathhouse. Savin Hill Beach has a tot lot, baseball fields and a protected swimming area. Both beaches are owned and operated by the Department of Conservation and Recreation.

Both beaches also provide a close-up view of the Keyspan Gas Tank, one of Dorchester waterfronts most recognizable landmarks. The tank, decorated with giant rainbow-colored stripes, is the worlds largest copyrighted artwork.
Nearby is the Vietnam Veterans Memorial of Dorchester across Morrissey Boulevard. The memorial consists of two stone arch structures; inscribed are the names of the fallen Vietnam Veterans from Dorchester. A path leads to the memorial and there is extensive landscaping with decorative flowers and bushes.
