Conserving Condor Street Urban Wild
By the 1980’s, the contaminated site was an urban brown-field. Designated as a remediation project during the Big Dig, the site had tons of metal, tires concrete and asphalt removed. The area was capped and redeveloped as a functioning coastal habitat with a salt marsh, tidal flats and an upland meadow. Opened to the public in 2003, the natural area also has walking paths, a boardwalk and a viewing platform overlooking the Chelsea Creek estuary.
Events here include litter clean-up, the removal of flotsam from wetlands, and pruning and mulching the young trees on this Boston Parks property.
