Memorial Drive Alliance
"A Parkway is not a Road, but a park with a road in it."
Massachusetts DCR Historic Parkway Preservation Treatment Guidelines
The Memorial Drive Alliance is a diverse group of Cambridge and Boston-area residents, community organizations, businesses, and government officials. We represent people of all ages who care deeply about the natural beauty and health of the Charles River and the ability of people to walk, run, and ride bicycles along Memorial Drive safely. We have a shared goal of making the Memorial Drive Parkway a beautiful, safe, vibrant, and climate resilient green corridor for all, for many generations to come.
Our Two Asks:
1: Replace two motor vehicle travel lanes on Memorial Drive with protected multi-use paths along the full length of Memorial Drive.
2: Plant new trees wherever there are gaps and restore the iconic "sycamore allée".
The Memorial Drive Alliance includes the following organizations:
