Watertown - Cambridge Greenway Project Public Meeting

The Watertown-Cambridge Greenway is an effort launched with the joint purchase of a former B&M Railroad line, the Watertown Branch, by the City of Cambridge and the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) to create a multi-use pathway and greenway.  This purchase, which includes the former railroad right-of-way from Concord Avenue in Cambridge, through the Fresh Pond Reservation, under Huron Avenue, and into Watertown, will be developed into a pedestrian and bicycle path, helping complete the important regional connection linking the Charles River path system and the Minuteman Bikeway.

At this public meeting, DCR will present, and obtain feedback on, the proposed design at the 75% completion phase.   

The public meeting presentation will be viewable the following day on DCR’s website and on the City of Cambridge website
