Riverbend Park in Cambridge to Remain Open Through November 29, 2020

Public reminded to follow public health guidance to slow spread of COVID-19

The City of Cambridge and the Department of Conservation & Recreation (DCR) announced today that Riverbend Park in the City of Cambridge will continue to open for pedestrian and cyclist use on Saturdays and Sundays through November 29, 2020 and Memorial Drive will be closed to vehicular traffic from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.

“I want to thank DCR, especially Commissioner Montgomery, for working with the City to extend the weekend openings for Riverbend Park,” said Cambridge City Manager Louis A. DePasquale. “Riverbend Park is an important open space resource in the City and I strongly encourage users of the park to continue following current public health guidance and recommendations.”

Members of the public are reminded that they should maintain physical distancing of at least 6 feet from non-household members, practice good hand hygiene, and wear a mask or face covering at all times when on or in public places in Cambridge. Public places include sidewalks, streets, parks, plazas, bus stops, non-residential parking lots and garages, and any other outdoor area or non-residential parking facility which is open and accessible to the general public.

Residents are advised to stay home if they feel unwell, have tested positive for COVID-19, have been exposed to someone with COVID-19, or have traveled to or from a state that is not classified as lower risk within the last 14 days.
