Excerpt from Report of the Board of Metropolitan Park Commissioners: January, 1903

River between Newton Upper Falls and Dedham, although thought to have been provided for, could not be acquired under the appropriations which were made with reference to takings on that river. The acquirements of those portions of the seashore of the District which are desirable for public use and not required for commercial or business uses is as complete as the Commission can recommend, except at Lynn, Winthrop and Nantasket. Acquirement of the desired shore at Winthrop has been rendered difficult and perhaps impos sible by the erection of buildings which obstruct the line of improvement of takings previously suggested. A Similar result may follow at Lynn and N antasket, unless immediate action is taken.

The parkways may be divided into those north of the Charles River and those south of the Charles River. For the latter, the lands have all been acquired except for that portion of the westerly parkway which lies between Paul's Bridge and the Blue Hills, and for the spur or entrance parkway from Dedham to the Stony Brook Woods. For the system north of Charles River, there remain to be acquired only the lands for the portion of the westerly parkway which lies between Fresh Pond Parkway and Mystic River, and for the parkway between the Fells and Lynn 'voods, and be tween Lynn Woods and the Revere Beach Reservation, and for the spurs or entrance parkways from Wakefield and from Woburn to the Fells. It also remains to be decided whether a connection shall be made between the north and south portions of the system by a parkway from Charles River across Cambridge to Broadway Park in Somerville, where Fellsway begins. Such a connection has been recommended in a special report made by direction of the Legislature, but it ought to be considered as a special matter, because the dense pbpulation through which it must pass will render its acquirement very expensive, and because, as the Commission thinks, the even greater necessity of providing for other' classes of travel through the same territory may be dealt with most economically and conveniently at the same time.
