Along the Trail:

16th Annual Neponset Pumpkin Float
(with help from volunteers)

It's that time again! On Thursday, October 26 at 5:00 pm, join the Deparment of Conservation and Recreation and the Neponset River Greenway Council to float jack-o-lanterns on Davenport Creek in Pope John Paul II Park in Dorchester. Bring your SMALL carved pumpkins and we'll put them on floats, add candles, and send them down the creek around 6:00 pm.

Please use the Hallet St entrance.

DCR will provide the floats and candles. If your pumpkin is too heavy, not carved out, or larger than 8", it will probably not float.

Costumes are encouraged!

We need VOLUNTEERS! Please contact Maria Lyons or Ellie Spring if you can help!

Harvest River Bridge at Night

On my way home from the September Greenway Council meeting at the Milton Yacht Club in a light drizzle, I decided to ride the closed trail instead of getting hit by drivers impaired by wet windshields and found the Harvest River Bridge to be quite beautiful.
