West Farms Section

Reach 5: Tremont Avenue to 180th St

This reach is the site of a new section of greenway, or bike path, beginning in the fall of 2007. Sections of bank on the west side where old bank “repairs” consisted of stacking used tires, will be re-constructed. Elsewhere along the bank, invasive exotic species will be removed and native riparian plants installed. This project will also create a canoe access site.
