The Park Is Sparkling

25 Apr

Thanks to the 70 volunteers who cleaned up the park on Saturday and for the Charles River Conservancy’s leadership. We focused on picking up microtrash–the bottle caps and cigarette butts left behind, that go nowhere unless someone deliberately removes them. Some of these hard plastics will be incorporated into the Plastic Tapestry Project: art that reminds us that these plastics will be with us for the next 20-500 years… Special thanks to Pack 56, My Stryde, the Cambridge Running Club and the Riverside Boat Club.

Art, Nature, History & Community at the Park!

Mass Audubon kicked off their year of programming at the park and their 5-year tenancy of the Powder Magazine with an event with community partners. To a spring and summer of fun at Magazine Beach!

    Concerning the Magazine beach area, I grew up during the 1960’s and I spent a large amount of time during my youth on the beach with my family.

    In fact. I can remember spending summer days with my family. on Magazine beach, using the pool and being a very young boy there, I learned to swim in the pool and we had fun together! Recently, I happily became aware of the changes going on at Magazine beach, which I commend. That said. I now look forward to a short walk to the Magazine to beach to check it out! I’m sure the surprise I see will ring a driish tear in my eyes! Wow. I sense change!. Thank you for your grand efforts quietly your pal, Joe J.
