2022 WalkBoston Bob Sloane Walk: Muddy River

Please join WalkBoston on Tuesday, June 7th at 5:30pm for their first organized walk in almost three years. Sign up today!

The walk is part of the Olmsted Now Celebration and is the first annual walk in honor of Bob Sloane. Bob was a co-founder of WalkBoston and passed away in May 2021. He was a true pioneer in walking advocacy and a pillar of WalkBoston, and the organization looks forward to honoring his legacy by hosting a walk each year in his name.  

The walk will start on the Muddy River walk at the rear of the Hilton Garden Inn at Boylston Street and Brookline Avenue in Brookline (700 Brookline Ave, Brookline, MA 02446), close to the Brookline Village T Stop (D Line). 

This location is also accessible via:

  • Riverway MBTA Station (E Line)
  • 66 Bus – Huntington Ave / Riverway stop
  • 60/65 Bus – Brookline Ave / Pearl St stop

The route will wind its way from Brookline along the Emerald Necklace’s Muddy River toward Boston’s Fenway neighborhood. Route map to be added to this page soon.

A representative from Fairsted (the Frederick Law Olmsted National Historic Site) will accompany us to discuss Olmsted’s vision, describe the history and design of the Emerald Necklace, and update us on the restoration projects located on this section of the Emerald Necklace. Additional speakers will join us along the route.
