Upper Charles River Reservation

96 Forest Grove Road
Waltham, MA 02453

617-727-1058

The Upper Charles River Reservation extends from the Watertown dam to Riverdale Park in West Roxbury. Throughout the reservation, continuous public pathways take visitors along the banks of the river, winding through the communities of Watertown, Waltham, Newton and Weston. The reservation links the Upper Charles and its surrounding communities with the Boston and Cambridge pathway system, and, by restoring native plants to the river’s banks, has encouraged a return of local birds and wildlife.
