DCR MYSTIC RIVER MASTER PLAN

 

ABOUT THE MASTER PLAN

The Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation’s (DCR’s) 162 page Mystic River Master Plan provides steps for preserving and restoring the area surrounding the Mystic River from the base of the Lower Mystic Lake in Arlington and Medford to the Amelia Earhart Dam in Somerville. The comprehensive plan, published in 2009, promotes restoration of river banks, increased recreational use of the park land surrounding the river including the development of a continuous multi-use pathway system. The plan also calls for the protection and enhancement of wildlife habitat and increased opportunities for water-related activities such as fishing and non-motorized boating.

Read an update on where the plan stands as of July 2015.
