Right outside of Boston along the Malden River, lies River’s Edge, a young, energetic community. The story of River’s Edge is one of environmental conservation and commitment to community.
New life along the Malden River
Our story of conservation began with a 10-acre restoration of abandoned river-front property. Prior to the restoration, the river view was obscured by overgrown, invasive vegetation and an accumulation of river debris. After a massive ecological cleanup, the award winning Park at River’s Edge is now home to local wildlife, Tufts Boat House, and a wide variety of community events.
YOUR RIVERSIDE VIEW
Residents of River’s Edge share in the benefits of a revitalized Malden River. As a 2008 Honor Design Award winner, the park was praised by the Boston Society of Landscape Architects as “a place with endless potential.”
The October 2014 issue of Landscape Architect & Specifier News includes an article entitled “Transformational Remediation – the Park at River’s Edge,” which covers the decades-long remediation process of the park, as well as its success in reconnecting the public to the park, the river and the wildlife.
A Continuing Part of a Growing Community
River’s Edge continues to be avid supporters of the park’s development, with participation in a green living program, running club, and urban garden. The park is open to the public daily from dawn to dusk.
The best of both worlds
With Boston under 10 minutes away, our residents experience the cultural advantages of a big city with the scenic comforts and open spaces provided in our natural riverside setting.
