Rivermoor III

Ownership: Boston Conservation Commission 

Neighborhood: West Roxbury  

Rivermoor III Urban Wild is a narrow parcel of floodplain marsh along the Charles River. This city-owned urban wild is contiguous with other riverside parcels owned by the Army Corp of Engineers and the DCR. Together, these areas form a riparian buffer between the Charles River and industries to the north. Because the industries were built on filled land, a steep embankment sloping down from Rivermor Street forms the northern boundary of the parcels.
