Even though it's right between major streets in
Cambridge (Western and River), beware, you can't see if from those
streets. The easiest way to get there -- from Memorial Drive, turn east
onto River St (left turn if you're coming from Harvard and the burbs,
right turn if you're coming from MIT/Boston). Going East on River St.,
take your 2nd left onto Putnam. Then, take your next right onto a tiny
street, which will take you to the park.
Alternatively, if you're coming from Mass Ave, head South on Prospect
(towards the River). Stay towards the right on Prospect, which will
become Western Ave. Go 7 or so blocks on Western, past Jay St. and
Howard St. At the next small street, Gillmore or Bancroft, go left. That
will take you to the park. If you miss these streets and hit Putman, go
left and take your first left to get to the park. If you hit Memorial
Drive, you've gone too far.(Direction details)
