. Charles to charles. Open spaces; Parks; Recreation; Wetlands. WHAT WE HOPE TO ACHIEVE The Conservation Commissions of Boston and of Brookline are seeking to translate the corridor from concept to reality. Working with public agencies and property owners, we propose to develop an open space plan and program based on the following objectives: To create a continuous public open space system linking existing private and public open lands to be preserved in their natural state. To provide forms of recreation in short supply for urban residents: hiking, bicycling, cross-country skiing and simple enjoyment of nature. To shape urban development by preserving a strip of open land at the Boston /Brookline boundary. To protect and enhance existing natural features of outstanding beauty: ponds, wetlands, hilltops, woodlands and views. To conserve wetlands which are important to ecology and flood control. To replace parkland lost in recent years to roads, parking lots and other uses. To provide a means by which Boston and Brookline can plan for the area at their common boundary and landowners on both sides can participate in the planning. To recommend sites appropriate to limited development which are compatible with the corridor concept. FIGURE 3.
