Dr. Mark Romanowsky, founding director and current President of LP&CT, has generously worked over several years to create a series of oil paintings featuring the special places of Lowell, as well as scenes from the surrounding area, coastal areas, and his travels. Mark graciously donates 100% of the proceeds from the sale of his original paintings, prints, and note cards to benefit LP&CT. This "Special Places" collection is now available on Etsy, where you can purchase originals, prints, or commission a special painting. A selection of his works is below.

|The Concord River Greenway Park (also know as the CRG or Greenway) is a multi-use trail through the green heart of Lowell. Parts of it run along an old railroad bed, while it contours the scenic, tree-lined, north-flowing Concord River. The Greenway is an excellent place to enjoy being outdoors, recreate, exercise and enjoy observing a biodiversity of wildlife from otters and foxes to hawks and mergansers. We anticipate, in the long range vision of the park, a link from the Greenway to the Bruce Freeman Rail Trail (the BFRT has a trailhead by Showcase Cinemas in Lowell) See trail connection map here. We can use your help via membership support. To learn more about the history and science of the Concord River Greenway, visit the Greenway Classroom pages.|
