Concord River Greenway

Next Phase of Greenway Construction

              The City of Lowell has received $1,350,000 in PARC and Gateway grant funds to enable completion of the Concord River Greenway Park.  A new bridge will be placed at the end of the Lawrence Street section, crossing over the Concord River to Centennial Island.  From there this multi-use recreational trail will travel on the Lawrence Street side of the Concord River down to Jollene Dubner Park at Rogers Street, then cross the river and travel down the eastern bank of the river to Andover/Church Street.  Wopo Holup’s stone carvings and three additional multi-lingual informational signs are ready to be installed.  Click here for a map of the latest section of the Greenway! Construction will be complete by October.
