Description:
Wollaston, Massachusetts, is a neighborhood in the city of Quincy, Massachusetts. Divided by Hancock Street/Route 3A, the Wollaston Beach side is called Wollaston Park, while the Wollaston Hill side is called Wollaston Heights.

It is bordered by the North Quincy neighborhood to the north, Quincy Bay to the east, the Merrymount neighborhood and Quincy Center to the southeast and south, and Milton, Massachusetts to the west. Wollaston is served by the Wollaston Station on the B branch of the MBTA Red Line, which runs north-south from Cambridge, Massachusetts to Braintree, Massachusetts.

Mount Wollaston, a similar-sounding 17th century designation for Quincy, is now given to a cemetery in the current neighborhood of Merrymount in Quincy.
