The Neighborhoods and The River: Walking Tour

  • Kendall Square Canal 15 Broad Canal Way Cambridge, MA, 02142 United States (map)

Meet us at the Broad Canal in Kendall Square and set out on a 3-mile journey along the Charles River!

Join Common Boston and The Charles River Conservancy on a walking tour connecting our two "common point" neighborhoods: Kendall/MIT and Allston-Brighton. Explore the urban edges of this "Place in Between" and learn about the projects that have shaped, and continue to reshape, the river's edge. We will visit landmarks, parks, and nature's beauty along the way.

Led by Evan Bradley, the Conservancy's Research and Outreach Intern, this tour will help us reflect on the role the river plays in the neighborhoods and how access to the river affets the perception of a place.

Please meet promptly at 4pm. This is a one-way tour, with Redline T connections near both ends. Caution: We will cover is 3-miles in about 90-120 minutes. Wear comfortable shoes, bring water, sun glasses, hats and a layers for warmth.

In case of heavy rain, the tour will be cancelled. We will send announcements day of if the forecast looks grim.
