Situated on the banks of the Charles River, the Leo J. Martin Golf Course began play in the 1930's.

During the winter months, the course is transformed into a commercially run cross-country ski area, with equipment rental and refreshments.

The Riverside Park and canoe launch is at the end of Recreation Road.

The headquarters of the Charles River Watershed Association is in the park.
