Guided Walk

Waltham Riverfest Walk

Saturday, June 15, time 2:30 - 4:00pm 

Meet down the Riverwalk Path between Margarita's and Charles River Canoe & Kayak, 195 Moody Street

 

Celebrate and learn about the mighty Charles with an easy stroll along the river. Traveling on the paved pathway in front of Cronin's Landing, we’ll head upstream from Moody Street and hear how what was once an unsightly industrial area became the beautiful Upper Charles River Reservation. We'll be on Crescent Street for a stretch, then back on the Riverwalk after Prospect Street where we’ll discuss famous residents of the Mt Feake cemetery, the popular canoeing and entertainment venues along the river in bygone times, and contributions the Waltham Watch Factory made to the American Industrial Revolution and the Waltham community. At Woerd Woods, we'll see where WLT stewards have planted hundreds native trees, shrubs, ferns, and flowers.
