Malden River Greenway

MyRWA is working to create a shared vision for a seamless waterfront park system along both sides of the Malden River, connecting communities in Medford, Malden and Everett to this important natural resource. Currently, a little more than 1 mile of the 3.5 miles of shoreline is accessible green space – this is a result of generations of industrial uses. Thanks to local leadership and several brownfield redevelopments, the Malden River is on its way to becoming a central open space amenity for all three cities.

Over the course of 2017, MyRWA will be partnering with cities, local developers/businesses, community groups and citizens to create a comprehensive vision that will support the implementation of vibrant and connected parklands along the river. Utile, the design consultant, will create a master plan and recommendations for new parks, paths, and amenities along the Malden River. The study will also explore the possibility of locating a public boathouse, docks and a pedestrian bridge across the river midway between the Medford Street bridge and the Route 16 bridge.

Join us for a public workshop on June 26 to learn more about the plan and to share your vision on the future of the Malden River.
