We’ll meet at Nahanton Park on the Newton/Needham line where boat rentals are available (see www.paddleboston.com for rates) and paddle upstream to Millennium Park (2 miles) where we will picnic on top of the hill with stunning views of the Charles River basin and Long Ditch in Dedham, as well as downtown Boston and the Blue Hills. The hill is the site of an old landfill, since capped by dirt from the Big Dig, and now offering handicapped-accessible walking trails and connections to other trail networks. If time permits, we may paddle further upstream and explore the lower reaches of Long Ditch or Cow Island Pond. Bring lunch, water, and spare clothing in a dry bag.
