During the Public Meeting on Mary 24th, Offshoots Inc and Horsley Witten shared two design schemes for the future riverfront Park along the Mystic River in Somerville. The Mystic River Watershed Association, in partnership with the Mass. Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) and Groundwork Somerville, is leading a comprehensive, community-driven plan and design for Blessing of the Bay Park. Now’s the time for more residential input! The Mystic River Watershed Association has created an online form so you can tell us which park design you like most and why. This feedback will be analysed by June 22nd and will be used to develop a final schematic design that will determine the future of the park. A link to the two schemes and full presentation can be found on the website. Choose between the ‘Blessings by Boat’ design and the ‘Herring Explorer’ design! Each one brings a unique focus to the space.

To encourage more participation, everyone who participates in the feedback process is automatically entered in a raffle to win TWO FREE passes for a canoe/kayak rental from the Paddle Boston location at Blessing of the Bay Boathouse!

How would you like to use your space? Vote now! Your vote will affect the future of the park!
