Fort Heath, now a city park, is located on Grovers Cliff in Winthrop Highlands off MA Rte145, which in turn is accessed from US Rte 1A northeast of Logan IAP.

No mention is made of the Air Force’s 820th AC&W Squadron that shared this radar site in 1961 - 1962, but that is not too surprising, considering the brief occupancy.
