Although the Charles River has come far, there's still a lot of work to do before swimming is a regular occurrance in the Charles. This is the only day you can swim in the river thanks to a Special Use DCR permit and decades of advocacy and restoration! Learn more about our Charles River Swimming Initiative here.
