Please join us at Cambridge Arts, at the City Hall Annex at 344 Broadway, this Saturday from noon to 3pm, to share memories of Magazine Beach Park. Do you swim there? Picnic there? Celebrate important days and events? Please share your significant recollections of this special place. We’ll share them with the park designers as they begin to map out changes to the upriver (playing fields to the Riverside Boat Club) part of the park this year. A complimentary lunch will be served.

And then on Monday evening, Feb. 2, 6-8pm, we’ll host our Dessert Café, with delicious homemade goodies and hot drinks. Several organizations will co-host the Dessert Café. They include: the Cambridgeport Neighborhood Association, Cambridge Arts, Cambridge Historical Society, Cambridge Historical Commission, Riverside Boat Club and Charles River Conservancy.

Both events are free and open to the public. They celebrate our exhibition, Magazine Beach—A Place Apart, up until Feb. 27. A note about transportation: Please walk or take public transportation to the City Hall Annex. Due to all the snow, parking will be difficult!

3rd Graders from the King School Tour Exhibit

Today two third grade classes from the King School visiting Magazine Beach–A Place Apart. The students have been learning about Martin Luther King, the American Revolution and Cambridge history. The focus of our tour was “How do you make a change in your community?” Many of the students knew the park and had swum in the pool there or played soccer or T-ball.
