Thanks to the generosity of Common Impact and Stantec Engineering we’ve unveiled a Feasibility Study for a permanent swimming facility on the Charles River. Help make this vision a reality. Donate here!



Help make a permanent swimming facility in the Charles River possible: GIVE TO OUR INDIEGOGO CAMPAIGN


July 12, 2016 – Through a partnership grant from Common Impact, a team of volunteer professionals from Stantec Engineering conducted a study for the Conservancy, which explores the feasibility of a permanent swimming facility in the Charles River at North Point Park. Their work has determined that given further study and due diligence, a permanent swimming area is feasible.

July 12, 2016 – The Conservancy is pleased to announce the launch of an Indiegogo Campaign to help fund critical next steps in the process towards building a permanent swimming facility in the Charles River. Every dollar counts! Please consider donating, to help us reach our goal of $25k for further testing and research.

July 12, 2016 – The Conservancy hosted the Fourth Annual City Splash, its wildly popular community swim. Over 300 people are expected to swim, with 150 on the waitlist! The event got extensive media coverage, including being featured on the front page of the Boston Globe!

June 30 – In early July, the Committee on Environment, Natural Resources, and Agriculture voted to send the governor’s National Pollutant Discharge Elimination Systems (NPES) delegation bill to study, meaning that the bill will not get voted on this legislative session. This is a big win for state water quality!





Many of the Conservancy’s events are made possible in part by Watertown Home Depot:
