The Fresh Pond Reservation is a 162-acre preserve surrounding a City of Cambridge drinking-water reservoir. The park area includes a soccer field, community gardens, path and trail systems, a butterfly meadow, and new wetlands and wet meadows. Pine & Swallow provided hydrologic design for the wetland stormwater treatment system to protect drinking water supplies, created a soils management plan and soil blending strategies for the range of site landscapes, and assisted with stabilization systems for naturalized paths.
