The Muddy River and its parklands, part of Frederick Law Olmsted’s Emerald Necklace, are undergoing a major restoration. Thanks to Phase 1 of the Restoration Project, a key section of the River has been restored as an open-air watercourse with new culverts and bridges created at the Riverway and Brookline Avenue.

Join us to learn the latest about Phase 2 of the project from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the Town of Brookline and the City of Boston. Presentations will address the Muddy River restoration, the Carlton Street Footbridge Rehabilitation and improvements to the Muddy River parks. Speakers will also describe how, as it restores a key green environment, the project has become an important component of local municipal plans for climate resilience.
