The new North Bank Bridge connects Paul Revere Park to Cambridge’s North Point Park. It is a magnificent bridge and is the first of many bridges that will connect us and Cambridge to the medical area on Nashua Street, Memorial Drive, and the Esplanade.
The “Candy Cane Light” Path from Rutherford to the North Bank Bridge is a wonderful gateway path to this area for those who live west of City Square Park in Charlestown. But the Path and nearby Rutherford sidewalk are a mess! The Friends of City Square Park and the Rutherford Corridor Improvement Coalition (RCIC) are sponsoring, in partnership with Mayor Menino and the Department of Conservation & Recreation (DCR) a clean up of both areas on Saturday, August 11th from 9:00 AM to noon.
We need your help! Please sign up to join us before NOON ON WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 8TH by emailing Ivey St John at firstname.lastname@example.org, or phone 617-241-8981.
On Sunday, August 12th, at 11:00AM, folks will gather at Paul Revere Park for a celebratory tour of the North Bank Bridge and the newly-cleaned “Candy Cane Light” Path. RCIC’s Michael Kelleher will highlight the history and important artifacts along the path and the Miller’s River.
