Emmanuel Hosts Ribbon Cutting for Muddy River Restoration Project

On Friday, April 21, Emmanuel College hosted the celebration marking the completion of Phase One of the Muddy River Restoration Project, a comprehensive effort to prevent flooding, improve water flow and make landscape upgrades along this historic waterway. The milestone also marked the official opening of the “Justine Mee Liff Park.” Governor Charlie Baker, Mayor Marty Walsh, former Governor Michael Dukakis, Colonel Christopher Barron of the US Army Corps of Engineers and other dignitaries were in attendance.

The park is named after Justine Mee Liff, who served as Boston’s first female Parks and Recreation Commissioner until she passed away in 2002. Liff was dedicated to restoring the Emerald Necklace in Fredrick Law Olmsted, Sr.’s original vision.

The Muddy River Restoration Project’s objectives seek to improve flood control and water quality, enhance the aquatic/riparian habitat, rehabilitate the landscape and historic resources and implement Best Management Practices in the Longwood Medical and Academic area. The project introduces new river crossings and plantings along the recreated river’s edge for habitat and bank retention.
