Info & Directions for the Marsh Post
5 Greenough Blvd Cambridge, MA 02138
***NOTE: DO NOT PARK IN THE MARSH POST LOT***
Please ensure that you cross all the big streets AT CROSSWALKS. The area is a bit confusing, and it's tempting to dash across Greenough Boulevard... please don't! There are crosswalks at the traffic lights, please take the time to cross safely and legally!
There is ample, legal, on-street parking along Mount Auburn Street and neighboring streets. We have been advised that the BB&N School (across Greenough Boulevard from the Marsh Post) has tolerated parking in their PRIVATE lot in the past, but we make no guarantees. The parking lots across the river on Soldiers Field Road are controlled by the DCR, and the posted signs say they are closed at dusk. Your safest legal option is Mt. Auburn Street.
Red Line to Harvard Square and then walk towards the Charles River down JFK Street. The bridge that you first come to is the Lars Anderson Bridge. Take a Right before the bridge and follow Memorial Drive with the river on your left until you reach the Eliot Bridge. There will be signs pointing to go right to Arlington. Walk left instead and take the foot path towards the bridge (the first building you see on your left will be the Cambridge Boat House (THIS IS NOT US). Go around the boat house and walk UNDER the Eliot Bridge. The next building you see is the Marsh Post. Don't cross the river (unless you really want to).
The address is 5 Greenough Blvd Cambridge, MA 02138 (Marsh Post 442). DO NOT PARK HERE. Park on Mt. Auburn Street, or park at your own risk in the private lot of the BB&N School across the street.
Note that Greenough Boulevard is basically the extension of Memorial Drive, which ends at Mt. Auburn Hospital. The Marsh Post is located just to the south/southwest of the Eliot Bridge landing. (The Eliot Bridge comes from Soldiers Field Road, toward Arlington and the Fresh Pond Parkway / Cambridge.) The intersection can be a bit confusing, so leave a little extra time, and have patience with yourself if you miss a turn. You WILL find us! :-)
