Each summer since 2009, the Charles River Conservancy (CRC), in partnership with the MA Department of Conservation and Recreation, has offered free Sunday games on the banks of the Charles River along Memorial Drive by the Weeks Footbridge. This year, the games will take place from 3:30pm to 6pm, starting June 16 through September 29.

The Conservancy strives to provide recreational and play activities where community members can enjoy the river and the parklands in healthy, active, and innovative ways. CRC partners with Knucklebones, a local athletic and events company, to implement the program. They provide equipment and instruction for a variety of games—from bocce to beanbag toss, from basketball to badminton. There are hula-hoops and jump ropes, and from 5pm to 6pm, Cambridge-based Karma Yoga Studio conducts a one-hour yoga class. The game equipment is sized for children as young as 3 up to adults.

In its fifth year, the Sunday Parkland Games actively engages community members of all ages to enjoy the Charles River and the parklands.

All activities are free of charge and the program does not require registration – anyone can attend, and all are welcome to participate.
