Bask in the Nighttime Glow of the Emerald Necklace Conservancy

By Isabel Hochman | March 1, 2021 | Culture Events

The Chapel Street Riverway awash with soft green LED lights.

This winter, the Emerald Necklace Conservancy is offering the chance to spend time outdoors, with social distancing and mask wearing protocols in place. Explore the over 1,100 snowy acres of public urban land to experience the intersection of community and nature. Open from Feb. 13 through March 13 from dusk to 9 p.m., you can grab a hot chocolate, and wander over the six bridges lit by green LED lights. Comprising a portion of the necklace, these parks were designed by Frederick Law Olmsted. The light show was created in response to the challenging times we are in, and to give more light to these dreary winter days. The featured bridges include: Boylston Street Bridge in the Fen, Liff Park Bridges in the Fens, Chapel Street Bridge in Riverway, Bridle Footbridge in Riverway, Longwood Avenue Bridge in Riverway, Leverett Pond Footbridge in Olmsted Park and Ellicott Arch in Franklin Park. 617.522.2700,
