A New Walk Along the Charles in Upper Falls

An informal trail has long followed the Charles River shoreline north from the end of the Upper Falls Greenway, ending at a chain link fence bordering Bobby Braceland Playground. However, the difficulty of climbing the fence discouraged use of the trail.

In 2022, the Parks, Recreation & Culture department installed a gate in the fence, allowing easy access to the trail.

A one-mile loop includes both this new trail and the Upper Falls Riverwalk.

See the description of the loop.
