The Charles River Reservation has a little something for everyone. You can walk, run, or bike the Esplanade; look for wildlife; tour the Charles River Dam; go kayaking, canoeing, rowing, or sailing; or hear a concert at the Hatch Shell. There are also athletic fields and tennis courts, exercise stations, picnic areas, playgrounds, swimming pools, and a skating rink. The park starts in Boston and stretches 20 miles through Cambridge, Watertown, Waltham, Newton, Weston, Needham, Wellesley, and Dover. The reservation offers scenic views – both urban and natural. When you visit, be courteous – keep your dog on a leash and clean up your waste.
