DCR Hatch Shell
47 David G Mugar Way, Boston, MA
The Walk route will take participants on a scenic walk along the Charles River and loop back to finish at the DCR Hatch Shell for food, fun and entertainment. Located near the Arlington and Charles/MGH “T” stations, it's easy to get here by train or by car. Complimentary parking will be available at the CambridgeSide Galleria.
The walk route runs along the Charles River. NOTE: Given the heat in Sunday's forecast, the 6-mile route will be shortened a bit to allow for more shade. There will be three water stops along the new route.
Take the “T” (MBTA)
- Red Line to Charles MGH station – take the nearby footbridge across Storrow Drive and walk a few hundred yards upriver
- Green Line to Arlington station – walk up Arlington Street toward the Charles River and cross the Arthur Fielder Footbridge
Registered walkers can park at the CambridgeSide Galleria at no cost – just present the validation coupon that will be mailed to walkers along with their walk bib. From there you can hop on a free shuttle to the DCR Hatch Shell.
