Levingston Cove Reconstruction

Levingston Cove is a portion of the Crystal Lake shoreline to the west of the bathhouse. It includes benches, a platform used for fishing, and an unofficial swimming area.

In October 2021, the City Council authorized spending $1.4 million in Community Preservation Act funds for the “Levingston Cove Improvements Project.” The project’s goals are to “correct erosion damage, install new features to better deal with runoff, and construct new accessible walkways.”  (In February 2021, the Newton Conservators Board of Directors had urged the City Council to approve the project.)

June 2022 plan for reconstruction of Levingston Cove

Construction began in November 2022, and is expected to be completed in 2023.
