We’ve Come a Long Way, Baby…

6 Dec


It was 6 years ago that the Cambridgeport Neighborhood Association (CNA) engaged at Magazine Beach. Then CNA President Bill August had noticed that trees were growing into the foundation of the old granite block building there and about 25 neighbors and Riverside rowers dug them up and picked up trash—our first Magazine Beach cleanup.

Now, thanks to DCR, Cambridge & YOU, we’ve got a newly restored Powder Magazine and, almost, a plan for the western part of the park. What we need now is money to implement it. Please donate as generously as you can TODAY. The Lawrence and Lillian Solomon Foundation has just offered to match up to $10,000 of private gifts, so your’s will double. And your tax-deductible contribution will inspire other essential, State, City, foundation and corporate gifts.

Imagine at the park: natural play features, a splash deck, new picnic tables and benches, a dock, lookouts, a grassy beach and an expanded canoe/kayak launch. All of this is within reach.

Make donations to the “Cambridgeport Neighborhood Asssociation, Inc.,” for “MB revitalization.” Mail checks to CNA Clerk Olivia Fiske at 131 Magazine St., Cambridge, MA 02139 OR donate on Paypal.

Thank you and happy holidays from the Magazine Beach Committee, CNA. For a recent article about the park, see: https://cambridgeoutdoors.org/. For a short film, to inspire you, click here.
