Walk around DCR Charlesgate Park

It was great to see so many people turn out as we walked around DCR Charlesgate Park to survey current conditions and talk about possibilities to invigorate various areas. Starting location was in the area bounded by Charlesgate East and Beacon Street. See the event flyer for details. A special thanks to the members of Phi Kappa Sigma at MIT, who helped with park cleanup preparation and stayed around with us during the tour. Principals Marie Law Adams and Dan Adams of our newly named architectural firm, Landing Studio, were on hand.
