The neighborhood's park system extends to the Charles River where the fields are ideal for informal team play and the popular river basin invites sailing and kayaking whether you have your own or choose to rent for the afternoon. NorthPoint Park was designed to integrate with the park system that extends for miles along the river - making it ideal for biking, jogging, hiking and strolling. From the children's playscapes to the doggie water fountain and boat dock, the park is filled with thoughtful details for an active urban lifestyle.
The plazas and streets around the new MBTA station at the western edge of NorthPoint Common will host a range of dining, shopping and entertainment establishments. From a bicycle shop and health club to restaurants, cafes and a wine shop - the sidewalks and plazas will be busy morning, afternoon and evening. With a new Green Line MBTA station, hotel and specialty grocer joining the mix, Lechmere Square will bring a new level of convenience to the streets and sidewalks of NorthPoint.
An expansive public park woven into the heart of the neighborhood means that morning bootcamp, an afternoon jog or walking the dog is right outside your door. The sprawling landscape of grassy hills, paths and ponds links to a series of dog-friendly parks with unique identities - Earhart Park, Baldwin Court, Julia Park and Fuller Park. Designed to keep pace with active lifestyles, NorthPoint Common offers WiFi throughout and bicycle repair stations to assist those using the neighborhood bike paths to connect to the Minuteman Trail and the banks of the Charles River.
