Did you know that there is a hidden river running through Brookline Village? Boston’s Muddy River is a significant part of Frederick Law Olmsted’s Emerald Necklace, a string of parks from Boston Common to Franklin Park. For years the river has been easy to ignore, hidden as it is by stone and earthen walls, scrubby plants, bridges, and wide busy streets.

Recently, a $93 million restoration aimed at flood control has exposed the river’s beauty.

Join us to stroll from Brookline Village to the Charles River in Back Bay, following the river’s path. We will visit the famous Dutch House, Longwood, the Landmark Center, and the Fens with its rose garden, war memorials, and victory gardens. We end at Charlesgate for a glimpse of the river as it wends its way beneath roadways and bridges to the Charles.

Time: 10:30am – 12:30pm
Location: Meet at the Brookline Village T-stop, 31 Station Street.
