Cambridge is adding more than 4 acres of new parks n 2018 in the Kendall Square area, which is slapping on new commercial and residential space—including what could very well be Cambridge’s tallest building.
The new parks are:
↑ Rogers Street Park at Rogers and Third streets. It will include a field and a play hill to provide, in the city’s words, “a unique immersive play landscape.” A sloped lawn “will encourage snow play in the winter and community events like movie nights during warmer seasons.” There will also be a walking path as well as seating and tables beneath vine-covered trellises.
↑ Binney Street Park between Binney Street, Galileo Galilei Way, and the Grand Junction Railroad corridor. It will include an off-leash dog run within a public plaza with seating. The city describes the space as porkchop-shaped space. It will also include a segment of the Grand Junction Greenway multi-use path, a planned regional off-road connection that will run alongside the railway corridor.
↑ Triangle Park at First Street, Edwin H. Land Boulevard, and Binney Street. The plaza’s design includes an elevated walkway that leads to a grove of trees overlooking the Longfellow Bridge and the Charles River. The plaza will be “suitable for small-scale community events and informal lunches,” according to the city.
