North Bank Bridge Description

The North Bank Bridge, which opened in 2012, provides a safe and convenient pedestrian and bicycle connection between Cambridge's North Point Park and Paul Revere Park in Charlestown. Spanning 690 feet, it heads under the Zakim Bridge and over the MBTA commuter rail tracks leading into North Station.

The 8.5-acre North Point Park on the trail's west end provides recreational opportunities for enjoying the Charles River, including a waterfront promenade, boat docks, and a playground featuring images of water creatures. Here, you can also connect to the Charles River Bike Path, which is only a block away and extends 22 miles into Boston's western suburbs.

The 5-acre Paul Revere Park on the trail's east end offers a large lawn, performance area, and playground.

Parking and Trail Access

Public transportation access to the trail is available via MBTA's North Station. A limited number of parking spaces is available at the North Point Park entrance.
