DCR collects public comments on MacDonald Park improvements

The Department of Conservation and Recreation presented their ideas for long awaited improvements for the MacDonald park that borders the Mystic River in Medford.  This is the largest green space along the Mystic River that spans from the intersection of Routes 28 and Routes 16 beyond the Meadow Glen Mall.  You can see the green space wrapping around the river west of the Malden River.

The Mystic River Watershed Association collected public comments through a survey and presented them to the DCR in letter form.  The Friends of the Malden River also commented upon their vision for the park via a letter to the DCR.

Both letters are linked below.  Please feel free to comment via our facebook page: Friends of the Malden River.  Thank you for participating.  We will keep the public informed of this important piece of the Mystic River Greenways!
