The Phase 1 project area is a 3,200-foot-long, crescent-shaped swath of parkland along the north bank of the river between Watertown Square and the Perkins School, encompassing 12 acres.  It includes a Braille Trail and Sensory Garden, with a design managed by DCR and developed with the assistance of the Perkins School, as well as improvements to the site’s riverbank, pathways, and landscape.   A signalized crossing at the Irving Street-Charles River Road intersection will be among the improvements made.

Phase 2 of the project will include pathway improvements and riverbank access and restoration along the area located on either side of the Phase 1 area, running upstream to the recently-restored Watertown Landing site at Watertown Square and downstream to the Watertown Yacht Club.
