"Dorchesterway" is kinda clunky, though. So if it ever happens, they should call it the Dotway!


Interesting. Does a larger map exist somewhere?


The Dorchester Parkway and Strandway and Columbia Road were all planned by the City of Boston to complete the loop/necklace around Boston. It goes from Boston Common to Marine Park. Marine Park predates all the parkworks from Charlesgate to Franklin Park. Upwards of 40,000 people would come to Marine Park on Sundays in the late 1800s. A more efficient way of getting people there was the widening of Columbia Road from Franklin Park and the development of the 'Parkway' and 'Strandway'. The Olmsted website specifically mentions this (parks and parkways) in its website regarding the 'Emerald Necklace'.
