Shadley Associates is working with the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation on renovating the largest waterfront park on the Mystic River. MacDonald Park, a component of the Mystic River Reservation, provides the Medford community with a multitude of flexibly programmed open spaces. Shadley Associates and our team of environmental specialists and engineers prepared an updated Master Plan for the entire park. In addition, the team prepared design and construction documents for the River Overview, an area with direct access to the water. A granite seatwall/retaining wall frames the water access and is bordered by new rain gardens. Additional seating and planting create a new open space within the park.
