The Clippership Connector, a proposed half-mile waterfront path, will connect more than 10 miles of contiguous greenways and provide a safe and scenic route between Medford Square, Andrew/McGlynn Schools and Riverbend Park. The path will allow people to walk, run, bike, and push strollers along a section of the river that, to date, has been blocked from public access. 

Thanks to a Partnership Grant from the DCR, the project is being designed and will be shovel-ready by late 2018. The Clippership Connector will be built approximately 18-24 months after capital funding is identified.
