“A Long History for a Short Bridge;” the Carlton Street Footbridge is Back!

The Brookline GreenSpace Alliance’s Fall/Winter Place newsletter is devoted to the achievement of the Carlton Street Footbridge restoration. It’s a history, written by project champion Hugh Mattison, that is worth sharing in full.

We also enjoy Sean Lynn-Jones’ comments: “When the bridge finally reopened in August 2023, I was surprised and delighted by the sheer pleasure of the experience of walking across the bridge…The height of the bridge also gave me a new perspective on Riverway Park as I looked down the contours of the Muddy River’s islands and banks.”
