The Newton Conservators are running a series of guided spring walks in park land around the city.
This weekend I’ll be leading two of them and you’re all invited to come.
Upper Falls Greenway – On Saturday at 10AM we’ll be meeting at The Depot Coffee Shop at the corner of Oak and Chestnut Streets. We’ll be taking a 3 mile tour of Newton’s soon-to-be newest park land as well as walk the possible future connections to Christina St and the Charles River Pathway. The Greenway project is scheduled to be completed in June, in the meantime though we’ll tell you about all the plans of what’s coming.
Riverside Pathway – On Sunday at 1 PM we’ll be meeting at the Lasell Boat House at the end of Charles St in Auburndale. We’ll walk the route of a proposed future path from Auburndale, to Riverside, to Lower Falls along the banks of the Charles River, then over Rt 128. It’s a 1 1/2 mile round trip over some slightly rough trails with one short but steep hill.
