Views of the harbor

The Mystic River Reservation runs along the banks of the Charles through Medford, Somerville, and Everett. 

In addition to two soccer fields, a bikeway/walkway, a picnic area with shelter and beautiful landscaping, the park has striking views of the harbor and the Tobin Bridge over the Mystic River. The award-winning landscape design of the meandering paths, trees and open lawns provides space for rest and enjoyment as well as bicycling, jogging, walking and informal games in a riverside setting.  Most of the trails throughout the reservation are accessible and appropriate for strollers.
