Charles River Walkway
About the Walkway

This beautiful, lush walk along the Charles River is a prime place to view the area's fauna. Walkers can take a three-mile stroll up Pleasant Street, cross the bridge at Bridge Street, and return on the Newton side of the river.
Another route for the River Walk travels along Charles River Road, then on to north beacon and Riverdale Park in West Roxbury.
