But the pool closes this Thursday. Swim there while you can. It’s quiet there today… The pool’s open 11:15am-6:45pm daily. (The spraydeck closes Sept. 2.)

$50k Earmark for Magazine Beach 

A few weeks ago, Governor Baker signed into law another $50k earmark for the park. This will be used to fund shovel-ready plans for the next phase of improvements to the park. THANK YOU, Rep. Jay Livingstone and Sen. Joseph Boncore for your ongoing commitment the park! And thanks, Gov. Baker!

Phase II-2 will include:

*replacing the sunken parking lot between the swimming pool and the river with a “grassy beach,” better integrating the pool and the park;

*adding a dock (increasing engagement with the river); and

*removing the invasives along the shoreline.

Magazine Beach Partners has submitted a request for $47,700 as well to the Cambridge Community Preservation Act Committee to match these funds.

SAVE THE DATE: Saturday, September 14, 5:30-7:30pm, for our Benefit Party for the park. More info coming soon.
