Nahanton Park Paddling Map

Nahanton Park, owned by the City of Newton, is located on one of the longest stretches of flatwater on the Charles River. Paddlers can travel two miles downstream to Silk Mill Dam (don’t approach — it’s a dangerous low-head dam!) or more than 10 miles upstream through beautiful parkland and marsh.

Explore the river using the map below. Click here for a printable version of the map below.
