Bicycle Parking and Amenities

There are several bike parking racks near building entrances and in both parking garages, and a self-serve repair stand is available in the west parking garage.

Through collaboration between Watertown businesses and the Department of Conservation and Recreation, a bike path connection from Watertown to Fresh Pond should begin construction in Summer 2016. This will allow access to Watertown from the Minuteman Bikeway.

Please see the Parking Garage Tab at the top of this page for more information about parking availability.
