EXPLORING TOWN BROOK- PART II
Saturday, July 11, 10 a.m.


On this tour we will explore the 2 new pocket parks created on Town Brook.  City Principal Planner Rob Stevens will describe the history of the project and Landscape Architect Matt Ulrich of UBLA Landscaping and Wetlands Scientist Chris Lucas of Lucas Environmental will discuss the Parks' design and features, including a hanging wall and a rain garden.  This part of the tour is wheelchair accessible.  Following the talk we will take a short stroll to one of the most scenic viewpoints of the brook.  Optional: bring your own picnic (or pick up a sandwich or slice of pizza at a nearby store) to enjoy in our new parks!

Participants should meet at the parks at the intersection of Hannon Parkway (Revere Road) and Mechanic Street.  Parking is available at the Hancock lot for a fee.  No registration is required.  For more information and rain date rescheduling please call 617/472-0799.
