    The Riverside Greenway Concept includes a combination of shared-use, ADA-compliant and foot-trails to connect the current terminus of  the Blue Heron Trail in Lyon's Field in Auburndale with the Lower Falls "Trestle" Bridge with access to 45 miles of trails in Wellesley. The Riverside Greenway Working Group presented their work over the last year to make this vision reality to an enthusiastic, standing-room-only audience at the Newton Main Library on January 24th 2018.
