Welcome to the Boston Architecture Diary, your essential guide to architecture exhibitions and events taking place across the city.
City Splash is a community event that provides the public the rare opportunity to swim in the Charles River! This annual state-sanctioned swim, hosted by the CRC, allows members of the public to experience the joy of swimming in the Charles River—one of the cleanest urban rivers in the United States! The event is held in a demarcated deep-water area off the Fiedler Dock on the DCR Esplanade in Boston. We work in partnership with the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation to obtain a Special Use Permit for this very special event.
