Concord River Greenway Description

The health and fortunes of Lowell have been intimately tied to the Concord River for hundreds of years. This tributary of the more well-known Merrimack River continues to be at the heart of the local economy; the town of Lowell was a textile milling powerhouse at the height of the industrial revolution. In this new iteration, the Concord River Greenway provides a valuable asset for residents as well as tourists.

The greenway is a multi-use pathway on the east bank of the river, a segment of which utilizes a former railroad bed. A stroll along the river reveals remnants of its industrial past. Features of interest include the Lowell Cemetery, founded in the mid-1800s, where many of Lowell’s prominent industrialists are buried, and the Wamesit Falls Overlook. The greenway acts as an outdoor classroom, offering plenty of opportunities for birdwatching and studying the rich and varied plant life. The hope is that the CRG will eventually connect to the prominent Bruce Freeman Rail Trail.

Parking and Trail Access

The trail entrance is located off Lawrence Street just past the Lawrence Street Bridge. Starting on I-495 N, head northeast and then take exit 37 for Woburn St toward S Lowell/N Billerica. Turn left onto Woburn St (signs for S Lowell) and then take another left turn left onto Lawrence St. A parking lot with bike rack provides convenient access.
