Mayor encourages residents to attend Malden River Greenway meeting on August 8


The Mystic River Watershed Association (MyRWA), in partnership with the cities of Everett, Malden and Medford, is undertaking a visioning process for a waterfront park system with connected paths, new amenities, and vibrant open spaces along the Malden River. Mayor Carlo DeMaria encourages Everett residents to join the second public meeting – on Tuesday, August 8, from 6:30 - 8:00 p.m., at River’s Edge, which is located at 200 River’s Edge Drive in Medford –which will include a workshop featuring early design concepts for the greenway plan.

In a 2016 meeting, Mayor DeMaria, discussed his vision for the Malden River, including increasing access to the river with canoe and kayak launches, fishing piers, bike paths, and new parks, such as the River Green Park at GE. His administration is currently working with the Friends of the Malden River, MyRWA and MIT to examine increasing recreational opportunities on the river.

The DeMaria administration is working on several projects that involve connecting the walking/biking path network around the Malden and Mystic Rivers. He and his team are also working with MyRWA, Wynn Development, National Grid, the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) and the Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) to create a complete system of pathways along the Malden River and use the new Woods Bridge on Rte. 16 to connect to Wellington and River’s Edge Park in Malden.

Mayor DeMaria stated, “The Malden River is a hidden gem in the City of Everett. Working with our partners at the Mystic River Watershed Association, we can open up access to the river, create recreational opportunities and encourage development along the river which will complement those activities. Now is both a critical time for the river and for our community. We will continue to work with private property owners, nonprofit organizations, state agencies and our municipal partners to make this riverway an asset for all of us.”
