Winding through Watertown Linear Park, this trail is a smooth, wide, paved pathway that links the park's amenities and provides an off-road route through downtown Watertown. The linear park backs up to houses along its northern edge and to the buildings on Main Street along its southern edge. Easy access to the surrounding neighborhood and businesses makes the trail a convenient and pleasant alternative to busier sidewalks.
Moxley Field and Moxley Playground are across the street from the trail's western end. South of Whites Avenue, Saltonstall Park connects seamlessly to the linear park. The Watertown Farmers' Market, Town Hall (which includes the town's Recreation Department), and Free Public Library are all located at eastern end of the trail.
Located in downtown Watertown, the park and its trail are within an easy distance of numerous residences, restaurants, businesses, and other attractions. The Charles River is south of the park and the Watertown Dam is a few blocks south of the trail's eastern end. For a longer adventure, hop on the Charles River Bike Path (also referred to as the Charles River Greenway), which offers a paved route along the river to Boston and connections to neighboring towns. Follow the greenway east about 0.6 miles to enjoy the Watertown Riverfront Park and Braille Trail (147 Charles River Rd #101).
Looking for other nearby trails? Head south to the Watertown Community Bike Path and continue northeast on the Watertown-Cambridge Greenway to West Cambridge, Cambridge Highlands, the Fresh Pond Reservation, and the Fresh Pond Bikeway.
The Massachusetts Bay transit system (MBTA) operates in Watertown and numerous bus stops along Main Street provide easy access to the park. Visit the MBTA website for more information.
Parking is available in the lot behind the Watertown Free Public Library and there are at least two accessible spaces.
