Blue Heron Trail: From Highland Avenue to Kendrick Street in Needham
This section of the trail is maintained by DCR.
An abandoned railroad bridge leads from Christina Street across the Charles River, where it connects with the DCR trail system. In connection with its proposed development on the west side of Needham Street, the Northland Investment Corporation has purchased property on the east side of Needham Street, opposite where a spur of the Upper Falls Greenway reaches Needham Street. The City of Newton, the Town of Needham, and Northland have begun discussion of the feasibility of extending the trail from Needham Street along the former railroad right-of-way to the bridge over the Charles.
